As in question about what my mother said about being Melungeon-it is very much true. I have about 6 witnesses to prove it. Its a shame she passed away this year or she would comfirm it also. I was also there. As I have said, not all Melungeons have Black in them. There was a lot that my mom knew that wasn't put into the Brandy Jack Book, which should have been. Like I said I also have another book over 400 pages and goes back to 1630. One of my other cousins wrote it and they did a lot of in depth reseach. They worked on the book for several years. It is very interesting. Also like I said only true DNA testing will tell the truth. Also there was a program I seen on DNA that says all DNA isn't 100% either. It varies from one place to another.
As for the Irish I know that there are Black haired Irish and Red haired Irish. I used to work with each of them.
I also have compiled three books over 300 pages each of church obituaries form Va./Ky. area. They go back to 1920. I am not finished yet. But they want be for sale. They have a lot of info. in them and are good for genelogy.
