Re: Any people with Madagascar or Guinea ancestry?

As a descendant of Slaves,
My other Ancestors were slave-traders
it is what it is & at times it seems, They sired enslaved offspring in every port along the world's known slave routes & then some! :\
So? My Family Tree/shared DNA is all over the place! ( ... trails from guinea to the congo, the azores, caribbean, europe & USA.)

Aside from SC, There's a big block of ancestry in Virginia_ Pope's Creek, Curles & Conjurers Neck, Henrico -
there's a UK connection (surnames, royall/povall, isham, pope, ivey, adcock, & their USA relatives. There's a a NC block, a few kuykendalls, I found mary chowan & francis howard) listed in my DNA matches)

There's also many fur/indian traders /
(DNA matches j.watts/mcpherson 1695 _there's another j. watts in 1724 both virginia ) there's many surnames from the extended watts & clans.

My research into my DNA is a reflection of the slave traders & the liaisons they made to further wealth & keep their wealth in selected families & their goal to strengthen the world's slave trading business.

... until Emancipation put an end to it.
