I found a good website for Senator Obama's genealogy at www.wargs.com/political/obama.html, Titled, Ancestry of Barack Obama, compliled by William Addams Reitwiesner. This site has all of barack obama's ancestors on his mothers side, as you scrolled down you will also see the title:extract from the U.S. federal decennial census, As I looked at the dunham relatives to my knowledge all of the dunham's on the census were white, including the census that skipped the race, because during certain census if you were white the race box was skipped, but for the people of color it had to be filled. If anybody appreciates american history, barack obama's ancestors on his mother side, are filled with american history, one would soon discover that baracks ancestors were the founding fathers of the united states and he had other famous individuals, and relatives from ellis island, this mans dna is a walking american history book of european ancestry, both the african american history and genealogy the european american history and genealogy are fascinating subjects, I hope all americans appreciate the contributions the rich, the poor, the slave the free gave to america.
