Re: Who Were the Skilled African Iron Workers?

Hi George,
This is an update.

The above question was asked in 2004, because I believed that my 4th and 5th great grandfathers were iron workers at the Catoctin Furnace in Frederick, Maryland.

Again, I thank you for your answer and I wanted you to know that there is a corelation between your answer and the DNA results. The DNA sequence similarity measure is 100% the same as the IGBO People of NIGERIA and the MBUNDU People in ANGOLA today.

Further research shows that the Igbo were at other Virginia and Pennsylvania furnaces.
