MARTIN

Martin1210Worldwidehttp://prussianmartinfamilyhistory.webs.com/YesI am solely studying the surmane of Martin to further my research my paternal ancestry. My earlest known ancestor came from Magdeburg, Prussia (now Germany). However, a family photograph (c1870) and an associated letter states my ggg grandfather was believed to be black African. This origin is contested by the analysis of my Y-DNA markers which reveals Native American ancestry. Taken into slavery?Martin
