African Ancestored Genealogy

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

From Wikipedia:

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 for additional insights into the African Diaspora!

Hello George,

You got me :)) .... I've been following your group and see so many of my Afrigeneas friends that I didn't want to be left out, so here I am. Thanks for starting such a group and I hope I can be of benefit to the group.

And thank you Kiersten Chase,

As the title indicates, this site is for the African ANCESTORED and not just those from the United States.

I am excited to develop and continue dialog with you and learn more about your South Africa - Cape Coloured DNA Project. Feel free to post info here.

Peace,
"Guide by the Ancestors"

Thank you, Angela. Got Genealogy is truly a labor of love (some months more LABOR than LOVE), but so far the response has been great. By the way, I was thinking of devoting one issue to finding Native roots online. If you're interested in writing an article for the newsletter, I'd be honored. Perhaps we can discuss this offline? Lemme know.
