I have read most of the messages regarding my 10th great grandfather Anthony "the turk' Jansen van Salee. My daughter got a "Keloid" after having her belly button pierced and the dermatologist told me that Keloids are more common in people who are dark skinned and have Spanish, and or black ancestors. The Dermatologist was hispanic. I read on a persons' family website, this is a common trait among Anthony's ancestors. Keloids are genetic. I wanted to tell the Dermatologist who told me this, that there are no dark skinned people in our ancestry, but now a few years later I find I did have a dark skinned ancestor. My daughter inherited this trait from him most likely, unless it is also on my husband's side and he knows of no blacks, Hispanics or Arabs on his side.
