Re: Thuya

I have a picture of my younger brother I am looking for at the moment. It is quite shocking to see after learning what I have learned of my genetic profile. I will post here once I find it.

Re: Thuya

I have read also where the color of her and Yuyas hair was due to the mummification process. I am not a scientist. But seeing how hair and finger/ toe nails are virtually “dead” skin cells would make one believe that the skin of Thuya and Yuya would have been “bleached in the mummification process a...

Thuya

An article from July 9, 2019.

The reopening of Thuya’s sarcophagus.

Asiatic Hebrew Phoenician features? Maybe. But definitely reddish blond hair.

Re: Green dot Central North America

Marcia, We do have some similar matches. Michigan area Indians. Florida and Mexico also. I am starting to think there was an NPE in my Ford line somewhere. Especially given the photos I have. I have also found a photo from early 1900’s of a related Ford family that have children that look very simil...

Re: Austin and Rice surnames

This John Austin is likely the son of my Richard Austin III and Elizabeth Rice. All presumably of Pamunkey, Catawba and Saponi origins. Here is a link to the transcribed Pleas and Quarterly minutes of Rowan Co. NC 1755 whereas Said John Auston a Saponi Indian and two other Indians requesting passage...

Re: Crypto Jews

Jakay, Thank you. I will purchase the book. I think it is likely that I have Sephardic ancestors. But like my Native American and Angolan/ Congolese ancestor/ ancestors, I have yet to find them. Also. It seems that our Democratic society that was formed in those days maybe based on a combination of ...

Re: Crypto Jews

I believe it is highly likely that some of the Pilgrims were of Sephardic origins. I came across this article on a DNA study of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock landing.

Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

Marcia, I am happy to share anything I find. Nothing is a secret to me. Some families still hold secrets. I personally believe that now more than ever our familial secrets need to be unearthed and told. In our present day where there is discrimination amongst all lower class. Black and white. And th...
