Re: Zimbabwe Genealogy
In Response To: Re: Zimbabwe Genealogy ()

noticing trends

I received 2 more Cousin matches from Zimbabwe recently in addition
to the ones I flagged earlier.
They seem to have a high level of Cameroon Congo DNA .
There's 3 other regions of Africa represented in their DNA. They have No European dna, I have 8 from that Zimbabwe 5 are from the area of Matabeleland North.

It's interesting, because I think an ancestor ( a few generations back, shared Cameroon ancestry) may have migrated to Zimbabwe.

I have a few ancestors from Cameroon & Congo (Bandundu) half are French surnamed Caucasians fr. the 1700s that migrated to Pointe Coupee, Louisiana. Who knows what happened or why they were born there ( Caucasians) during slavery times.
I have read about king Leopold i& his madness back in the mid to late 1800s in that region. ..This goes back a bit earlier. .

Is Anyone else trying to trace Zimbabwe/Congo DNA & DNA Cousins?
