Re: DNA Tribes New Populations
In Response To: Re: DNA Tribes New Populations ()

omaryi Bari, your dna showed up turk and arab, you see turks and arabs were in america, some came thru ellis island from 1892-about 1924. some came over as pirates and melted in the population in north carolina, before ellis island opened, there was castle garden, some came thru castle garden, some were in the west indies and later immigrated to america. some of the ancestors that immigrated changed their surname. Some came as seaman, some were stowaways, with racism abound, lots of turks, arabs, east indians from india, blackskin native americans, blended in the african american communities since some of their skin look like lightskin african america or darkskin african america. The arabs were in africa slave trading, the arabs were also in africa converting africans to Islam, descendents of arabs were in cape verde and the azores when they got kicked out of spain which was called al andulucia. On my motherside, the people were living in the south of spain in al andulucia in researching my relatives i found they were of ethiopion, arab, turk, sanhadja,(almoravid) they immigrated to puerto rico and also I found some were esclavos(slaves in puerto rico) as early as 1838, that was the immigration branch. I have old pictures of them they are old paintings, one of the ethiopian, and the sanhadja, the turk, arab. now, the turk, do not have white skin, the skin look like ancient native america, the hair is fine, he have a look that is uniquely turk of a tribe in turkministan near afghanistan, some of the turks was living in germany. not all the turks have the same look. Of his tribe they do not look white and they do not look african, however, in america, they woud not be allowed in a white community under jim crow, thus, they would be living in an african american community, and if the census came around they would put Mu or Black in the days of jim crow. Of the Arab painting, brownskin, with a red tint, hair fine, features, a hooknose, thin lips, the closes people they look like is the brownskin east Indian in india, of the sanhadja(berber and possibly mixed with fulani) He looks like north morroco, ears are big, light skin color, but not white skin, fine hair, nose aquline, thin lips. In jim crow america, he would be living in the african american community and on the census would be mu or black. because he don't look white, he don't look african, although he is african being of the sanhadja(berber). if you give me your grandparents name or great grandparents name and maiden names i can research the ports and see if they came over and immigrated to america under arab and turk. to confirm your dna.
