Re: Mende, Temne, Kru ancestry
In Response To: Mende, Temne, Kru ancestry ()

My mitochondrial DNA testing shows a 100 per cent match with the Temne people and the Balanta people, who though distinct culturally are apparently linked genetically. I would love to learn more about your research on the Temne people. My family's roots are in North Carolina, near the South Carolina border, and I am interested in exploring how my Temne/Balanta ancestor or her descendant ended up there. Also, I want to know more about the Temne people, past and present.
