Hi Deb (Cuz),
Continue to keep me posted as you work through your search.
There may be a connection that ties to the late 1600s or 1700s as you saw from my previous posts. There seems to have been a connection from the Caribbean to Virginia where slaves were transferred especially ones that were trained in a skill or "seasoned" in the Americas. This may explain some of the possible connections.
Also, it is clear that the Arabs were involved in enslaving East Africans and of course Ethiopians. Some of the exiled and enslaved were the Ethiopian Jews. Don't know if this is an explanation or not how some L3 especially the early ones made there way to the early America.
I'm waiting to hear back regarding the unique markers, especially the 129 and 291. 129 correlates to the N1-i, but doesn't pass the test to be considered N1-i at this time. N1-i is one of the fundamental identification for eastern European Jews. L3f was the immediate precurser to N1.
I did find out that my Mom has Asia mix, which makes sense for Middle Eastern decent. She also has Native American mix. I'm talking to family members to work through this compared to oral history.
