Mon, 05 Jan 2015 04:03:47 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/techroots/?p=1130#comment-25065 Very interesting article. Will you be able to do more detailed work for Native Americans, too, sometime in the future? I have a relative that has been told that he has Native American in his blood, but your estimation will be too general to really pinpoint whether it is North American or South America. It seems there should be a way to be more specific in regard to Native American heritage, and I hope you will some day consider this as your next project. :-)

What she also told me was that her African mother was a princess in Dahomey. So I had to find out who was king in Dahomey at the time her mother was a little girl. She had to be the daughter of either Ahosu Ghezo, (king is Ahosu in the Fon language) who was king of Dahomey from 1818 to 1858 or Ahosu Glele, who was king of Dahomey from 1858 to 1889. I’m figuring the young girl might have been born around 1856, give or take a few years.

Now I hope to find somebody who shares DNA and I hope to find the tribe.

Are the results dealing with Ghana/ Ivory Coast related mainly to Akan tribes/peoples? Would it be possible to tell the self proclaimed ethnicity of the Individuals tested?

I’d suggest looking through the detailed region descriptions on your results pages, as they main help to reveal some interesting history about your possible ancestors from that region.
