The Luxury of knowing

People often ask me about how I feel now that I have traced my ancestral roots back to Guinea Bissau. To put it bluntly, it feels like a hole has been filled.

As an African American, there are so many unknowns in and about our past. I became a bit discouraged when my online search using could not take me back past my great grandfather (who was a slave). I thought that was just the way it was, but then I discovered that there was a way to go back 500 years using the DNA test.

Knowing is a wonderful feeling.
