In Response To: Jefferson-Hemings ()
I assisted Dr. Eugene Foster with the Jefferson-Hemings DNA Study and I can state, and Dr. Foster has also, that NOTHING proves that it was THOMAS Jefferson who fathered a Hemings child. DNA completely eleminated the Woodson family........NO match. Only one Hemings match between John Weeks Jefferson (Eston Hemings descendant), and "SOME" Jefferson DNA. First names are not connected to DNA. Therefore, may I suggest in using DNA know your family's history well otherwise you will not learn the full history. May I suggest two web pages for further details: www.angelfire.com/va/TJTruth and www.tjheritage.org.
