I am so glad to read this particular thread about the Gullah and Temne/Mende people. I found out through African Ancestry, that my maternal side descended from these people and my research had led me to SC, where I found that grgrgranmother and her name ADALADE. I tested 99.7% Mende/Temne. You know I seriously believe the ancestors open doors for us to travel through to tell the story. A door was opened for me and I am going to be traveling to SC very soon to attend the Gullah Festival and tour the coast of SC. I am so excited, because in my heart, I know there's something waiting for me to discover. I have contacted the library there and hope I can fit some research time into this trip. Oh yes I failed to mention, I found out about a bus tour from my area 2 weeks before the closing deadline date for the deposit. A friend whom I hadn't seen in 3 years, gave me the form because she knew I loved traveling and she wasn't interested. She knew nothing about my family research. Don't it just make you have goose bumps.
