West Africa? I have ancestors from West Africa? Amazing.

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND THIS?

I have DNA from every colored area on the map. I am a diverse man. My ancestors come from at least five continents.

“You most likely had a fourth-great-grandparent, fifth-great-grandparent, sixth-great-grandparent, or seventh-great- (or greater) grandparent who was 100% West African. This person was likely born between 1700 and 1790.”

Hope I can track this down, the person and the story. I’m guessing it has something to do with slavery and the South.
