Dallas Johns Family My Direct Ancestors

This is the post excerpt.

Across the ocean lies my ancestors home in Africa. It is the place that saw the birth all humans on this earth. The original women and man. I am Bantu or Igbo according to all accounts I have researched so far. This blog will provide information on DNA testing, research, impact on African Americans and possible uses to genealogy research and identify your ancestors. I most confess I have European ancestors because of the slave trade and the rape of African women during slavery. They came across the ocean not voluntarily but they were forced.    My great great great great grandfather was a slaveholder in Wake County, NC. My great great great grandfather was born a slave as were his two brothers. I was told the plantation owner married the African Slave but I can find no evidence of the married or the name of the African Slave. DNA testing however has proven that I am a direct descendant.

I had to get my head around this bit of information and to except: 1. We can not pick and select our relatives, 2. We all are from one place and that is Africa period, 3. If the DNA segments matchup I need to except that for a number of reasons, 4. Still I rise.

Over the next few weeks I will provide Information on DNA in layman terms and I promise no quizzes. DNA can be great and it can be bad depending on your decision in using the results. I will explore all in my blogs.
