There are also vast numbers of "whites" with a white Scandinavian slave ancestor, and they have no idea the ancestor arrived after having been kidnapped in the far North by Swedes, or that they even have ancestors from Scandinavia.
Lucky researchers quickly find the prison barges with their Scottish, Welsh, Cornish and Irish ancestors who arrived before the Revolution.
BTW, when I find one of those guys in the line I make him into one of "God's New Men" ~ who has no ancestors. That usually cuts off any English ancestry such a person might have had.
I couldn’t find any African ancestry much to my children’s disappointment but they were happy that I did find two Indians, one a Cherokee woman named Rachel and another simply called, Eastern Chesapeake woman. I also have an endentured slave, refugees from the potato famine, a sheriff in Sherman TX at the time Jesse James was hiding out there, a ship boy who got stranded in NJ in the 17th century at age 10, several Revolutionary War heros including two who are women, a great grandfather who fought at Cedar Creek - actually, he started out with a Confederate militia and was captured at Shiloh, was paroled to his brother and father on condition he would join the Union Army. He did. Fathered 14 children, his wife died in child birth, he raised only one while fostering the others. That one was my grandfather. I have three rocks next to my computer. One is from the tumbled down chimney of a log house my gggrandfather built in Kentucky, another is from the cemetary of my sixth great grandma who was a Revolutionary War hero, and the other from the battle field of Cedar Creek.
And finally, I’m descended from a man who’s half sister and her husband openned the first brothel on Manhattan Island. She is the sixth great grandmother of Theodore Roosevelt. Beat that!
