In Response To: Re: South Carolina Egyptians - F.P.O.C.? ()
Which claim? Some of the info is at the Smithsonian. Other info is in the respective states' or countries' archives. As far as my ancestry being proof, I have documentation dating back to ~1790. There was a court case that ruled William Plecker was wrong and reversed his actions and other ideologies of the South (that didn't change the records, however).
Google the Moroccan Empire vs. the Ottoman Empire. Google the Friendship Treaty between the US and Morocco. Research the laws of VA and SC enacted in 1702 and 1705 classifying everyone to be mulatto. Google East Indian slaves in the Caribbean.
I have links to most of the documentation. I can provide them later. Please google this info as there is a lot out there.
When I have time, I will provide what I can. V/R.
Some of my ancestors were FPOC and passed down the truth.
