In Response To: Re: DNA Tribes New Populations ()

Hey Tonya and Chris,
Well, my results are back and boy are they mystifying!! I'm going to have to get used to not being Guinea-Bissuan anymore.......:-( sad face. Oh well, I have another new culture now.............I'm Shangaan or Tsonga......they are from Mozambique! Also, I'm Fang (Bioko Island) from Equatorial Guinea (Equatorial Guinea showed up 2nd on the last report after Guinea-Bissau. Then 3rd I'm Venda, from Zimbabwe and 4th Tswana from Botswana and then Xhosa from freaking South Africa!!! Why is the first West AFrican country other than Eq. Guinea listed as the 7th one of the list??? What's going on here??? I'm now thoroughly confused. Just as I was all exicted about Guinea-Bissau........I can still stay excited about Equatorial Guinea though and now I actually have an Ethnic Group - The Fang, but all this East or Southeast AFrican stuff is perplexing because of the limited amount (so we think) of slave trade involvment there. There was a substantial amount I think in Mozambique, but Zimbabwe?? Botswana??? Can anyone help shed some light on this?? It wouldn't be a problem if all this were down further on the list.......what's a problem is NOT seeing Nigeria, Benin, Guinea-Bissau or those countries until the very bottom. Help!!! I understand the Coninental Malay Archipelago, South Asian, North Indian, East Asian and Euro stuff. I'm really only focusing on like my top 4 or 5, but there almost all Southern/Eastern Africa! Help!!
