Dedicated to all things African Ancestored!
I like the inclusiveness of the term; it includes North America, South America; in fact the entire globe!
Another way of expressing this is the African Diaspora
African diaspora; One of the largest diasporas of pre-modern times was the African Diaspora, which began at the beginning of the 16th century. During the Atlantic Slave Trade, twenty million people from West, West-Central and South-east Africa were transported to the Western Hemisphere as slaves.
This population and their descendants were major influences on the culture of English, French, Portuguese and Spanish New World colonies. The Arab slave trade also transported Africans from the continent, although the effect of the Diaspora to the east is more subtle. It is my hope that you will participate in the discussions, contribute information, and basically get in where you fit in!NOTE: go to http://gedergenealogy.com
