Re: Sierra Leone - Mende
In Response To: Re: Sierra Leone - Mende ()
My Matriclan results also show an ancestral link to the Mende people of Sierra Leone. I Also showed a maternal Patriclan link to the Igbo Of Nigeria and/or the Mbundu of Angola.
My Paternal result for Matriclan was the Pima Native American Tribe Of The South West U.S. (My Great, Great Grandfather Must Have Been A Buffalo Soldier?), and for Patriclan was Yoruba of Nigeria.
I've started researching them all. I am particularly identifying with the Mende line as traditionally African ancestry Is traced through the mother.
It's all very fascinating. Hope To Be Able To Share Historical Information With Other Mende In The Future.
