Re: Fulbe/K2/Muslim Expulsion 1609/Songhay Empire
In Response To: Re: Surprising Results DNA/AQ/Ali/TAL ()
lol... yeah... they sure did get around. They appeared on my mom's side... but, more surprisingly, on my dad's side. He was a K2 and the lineage is pointing at Morocco and the Muslim expulsion of 1609. A lot of these Berber/Berber Arab converts were snatching themselves some Fulani wives... especially after sacking the Songhay Empire.
Although... since it is K2 which is in question... I wonder if the male was Fulbe and the concubine something else? Dad was a high-yellow, but his dad was like a tan to med brown complexion. Fes is the city which connects me and our surname is found there. It was very surprising to me as I did not expect that AT ALL, lol.
Do you know of any sources that speak of K2 and the Fulani Y-DNA?? There are a couple of docs I've snatched up, but I am sure there are some more. It would also be great to find some scholarly historical info (not DNA necessarily), as well.
