Article on History News Network
I wrote an article that is now posted on the History News Network. The article follows my ancestors from Colonial Virginia through the Legendary King Arthurs Time. I was able to track my ancestors using DNA & Genealogy, and the title I gave the article reflected that. However, the editor changed the title, and it is now King Arthurs Black Descendants. I am aware that many historians dispute the existance of King Arthur, and reflected that in my article (hopefully). My titled referred to ties to the Arthurian era, in an attempt to avoid controversy.
However, I am black, and have proved my lineage back through the period of King Arthur. Since taking my DNA test, I have been contacted by cousins, all over the World, Ireland, Wales, Germany, and here in the United States. Those who contacted me are relatives through my Lewis line, who entered Virginia around 1650.
I look forward to hearing everyones opinion on the article.
