Re: African Ancestry Results
In Response To: Re: African Ancestry Results ()
I looked at pics on the web and no distinctive feature jumps out at me as with some tribes but that doesn't mean it's not there. People always seem to know that I'm of Jamaican descent but when I ask what it is about me that tipped them off, they tell me that they can't say for sure but that I just "look Jamaican".
It would really be interesting if there were a geographical DNA project for descendants of slaves in this country similar to the surname projects for Euro descendants. I'd like to know the tribal roots of folks' ancestors who came from SC or from VA or from LA or Jamaica or Vera Cruz. Wonder if there's a clear pattern or whether slaves captured in various places were mixed together on the same ship before being sent to a particular locale in the Americas. Do you think it can ever be sorted out?
