    If its under $100, I am SOOO there! LOL! I will come back and tell you guys what I found and how my mother reacts. She's one of those types that gets drunk or gets mad at dark skinned people and call them worse names than any white person could imagine. I wanna burst her "I got Indian in my family" bubble so badly.

        Different father. :-( But I'll be able to find out more about at least the mitochondrial (I think) line which would most likely lead to somewhere in west Africa and I really want to know about that, too. My maternal g-ma's line is not the diluted side, unfortunately, which is the part that would cause my mother some butthurt. I may be able to get some of my mother's uncles or their children (my second cousins). They are all male lineage Mayberrys from the 1820s until now. My father is unknown to me except that I know he's some really light skinned guy that my mother wont elaborate about, but it would be great to know why he was light skinned. Was he Creole? Latino? Biracial? (sigh)
