If you saw African American Lives, you may remember that Henry Louis Gates was surprised to find European ancestry on his mother's side. He knew about his father's side, but not the maternal side. So you are probably right that there was more than one European ancestor.

I'm guessing that part of the slowdown is because all messages have to be approved by the moderator before they are posted. Just my assumption.. Maybe everybody is just worn out.
