Re: [Misc] West Indies (esp. Trottier, Robinson) P

"femme de couleur" means woman of color; this term was probably not interchangeable with "mulattresse"
- which means mixed race. Perhaps the court/census taker noticed more African features, maybe the person was born in Africa, perhaps the person admitted she was not mixed race (not "white" European/Sub-Saharan African) - but some other ethnicity.

One of the untold stories is the evolution of "magyars", as well as, the Barbary Slave trade. Both of my parents, and associated families have a fair amount of Baloch DNA.
