Learning I have Senegalese Ancestry
I am responding to something I saw under my name in the www.google.com search engines. Simply I had found 4 strong clues that indicated Senegalese ancestry. Presented them to their embassy in Paris and was accepted as such to their surprise.
I had responded to an article posted on Kalamu@aol.com about Mr. Crouche's criticism of the TV docuseries ROOTS. I stated that the importance of ROOTS is that it made viewers look towards Senegal and other Franco-phone countries in Africa for answers as many look to Niegeria and Ghana because they are English speaking. ROOTS made me look in to Senegal when the family kept finding answers. We said it must be Senegal. Also my father's first cousin informed me in 1980, that he was told he was Senegalese and that Senegal was described to him as a child.
