Ancestors Traced Through DNA
So far the lines that have been traced through DNA put my paternal Grandmother in Northern Nigeria with the Fulani Tribe. My brothers straight Male line through our paternal grandfather goes back to Southeast Asia, Columbia South America, and to North America. My straight female line comes from North African, into the Iberian Peninsula into the Basque Region of Spain, Switzerland, Germany, France, England, and the United States. This is the only line tested in which DNA cousins have contacted me. I have been in contact with DNA cousins from Russia, England, Australia, Virginia, Arkansas, and Alabama. Needless to say most are of European extraction.
One of my Great Great Grandmothers was a slave in South Carolina, and a member of the Malinke Tribe in Guinea. We know this from oral history passed down, and have confirmed it through records.
