We had a Cherokee story that per dna turned out to be African on two levels of testing. The dna is L01a and comes primarily out of Kenya, Mosambiqee (sp), Brazil, and the West Indies. We think we have a slave somewhere but are lost so far. The dna is not the Gold Coast dna so common in the US. FamilyTree thinks we might be looking at dna around 1400 to 1500 here in the US. Our ancestor lived in Tn but others lived in Ga, Il, Texas. Would love to have connections or know of others searching this dna. Our line ends at 1800.
Thanks for starting a forum to talk about slavery and its very mixedup past.
