y family, the Smiths, have been listed as either B or M in all census records and I can prove direct lineage. The earliest ancestor I have found so far was called Gypsy James Smith.
However, a DNA test states that I do not have any African DNA. It does show my Native American heritage since James Smith married a Cherokee woman in South Carolina in the late 1700s or early 1800s.
Has anyone experienced something similar or have suggestions as to why we were identified as such when we were not?
Thanks for any response.
