  •  I've read that and I've done genealogy research (0+ / 0-)

    and found no Spanish surnames. I don't think we have the typical Melungeon surnames - Williams, Simpson, Cunningham, Knight, etc.

    The Simpson DNA reveals that my Simpsons were not Scottish - they match a group from India and Pakistan. That can't be Melungeon, can it? Or is it possible? We're still trying to figure out what our DNA suggests.

    The Williams family DNA does match the typical European DNA type though.

    Do you know of DNA studies of known Melungeons?

    Of course, the DNA studies don't reveal the ethnicity of the women ancestors in the family, unfortunately.
