In Response To: Jamestown Slaves from Angola ()
Great Article Toot and David,
I tried the link to Toot's article but msnbc website stated the article I was looking for is not available, then I tried David's link to the Washington Post and read it there. My mother's family is from Virginia, My mtDNA is L1 and I have one exact Low Resolution match with one person whose heritage is Puerto Rican. I had my mtDNA results analyzed by Genetic Ancestors and my closest match and only near match was in Cabinda a enclave of Angola. It is good to know that some of the slaves did come from the Angola region who knows there may be a connection with my family.
