Re: NAs listed on early census
In Response To: NAs listed on early census ()
"I guess I am a little disturbed that some who may have connections to the early eastern tribes might not be considered NA because the names of their ancestors are not found on the rolls or census, but have done DNA testing and know they carry a Native American gene. As I was told by someone on the African Native forum, if your folks are not on the rolls, they are not and can never be a member of the tribe."
================================================================== Hello Linda,
From Admixture DNA testing I show a relatively small and almost insignificant % of NA ancestry......3%
My genealogical research places the possible NA ancestry back to probably the 1730's in eastern Virginia and the 1780's in what becomes Ohio. The ancestors are not documented on any rolls or census records. The tribal connections in Virginia were most likely with the Pamunkey and in Ohio with the Shawnee.
I have presented my "case" on the African-Native American Genealogy Forum found @ http://www.afrigeneas.com/forume/index.cgi?read=26021
Thanks for your questions and statements,
