Family, Family, Family. Our roots, our genes, our culture, our collected community pride, our health, traditions, morality, our lives matter. All human life originated in Central Africa long before all others. It is believed that there were more than one Adam and Eve (Non-biblical) according to research by scholarly works by NIH and others.. Genetics has proven that point but does not answer the key questions or does it. Who are you, where did you come from, what was your community group and what connection to other groups? Adopted from the Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill: “This is me, this who I am and this how I came to be”. I estimate there are more than 100,000 direct and indirect relatives genetically connected to me who have transition or living in America, Canada, African, South America, Caribbean, Cuba, and India particularly. Supportive documentation will be unveiled in upcoming blogs.
