Re: Lumbee Indians DNA Project
In Response To: Re: Lumbee Indians DNA Project ()

Hello, all! Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert, but my love of reading has to serve some purpose! *LOL!* I just wanted to point out something real quick about the Lumbee Indians. In the Carolinas, *many* folks share connections. The Indians are no exceptions. The Lumbee have familial connections/names with the Pee Dee Indian tribes of South Carolina. So if you happen to match any of the Lumbee, it does not necessarily mean that your ancestor was "Lumbee". The could have been Pee Dee, or any of the other tribes that share family bonds.
The Lumbee are an amalgamation of several different Indian tribes so if you are doing research make sure that you keep that in mind. I believe that I read that some of their ancestors were Tuscarora, Pee Dee, Cheraw, Keyauwee, amongst many others. I hope this helps!
