The study does not rule out the possibility of other races or ethnicities forming part of the Melungeon heritage, but none were detected among the 69 male lines and 8 female lines that were tested.

Also, the study did not look for later racial mixing that might have occurred, for instance with Native Americans.

Read it, it's a sad, sad account. I can't understand how on earth those people ever became "experts." First, Melungeons were known to be illiterate and they never left their land for any reason prior to the 20th Century, unless it was a dire emergency. They took the county to court around 1834 to prove they were Portuguese, so they could vote. So, how does an isolationist community dream up the term "Portuguese," out of blind luck. and it fits? Plus, the Gibson and Collins families have done DNA testing. They're European. It's sad that our history is manipulated.

Believe it or not, the newspaper article was far more biased and inflammatory than the actual study, to begin with. The study itself mentioned a frequent connection between Melungeons and Native Americans, and suggested connection with other groups, such as slaves, but the article in the Times News REALLY manipulated what was said.

It's said that the newspaper can't report accurately on the topic.

What if a study came out that said the blacks are now Portuguese descendants? Yep,I bet that would be accepted with open arms too.

I would like to get in on this discussion. I was made fun of before. I know I am Melungeon. A white mixing with a black means biracial not Melungeon. I have Portuguese, Turkish, white, black, and Native American in me. I love soul music. I like to dance to black music. I have sympathy for Native Americans for lack of a better word. My people hide behind who they are just for this reason no doubt. They will be ridiculed. I am not ashamed. I descended from that mean old Hampton Greene. I have really long hair, hazel eyes, part between my teeth, keep dark skin even in winter. Can tan in summer in a few days and look like my ancestors. Tom Seal was my great grandfather. You can look at me and tell me what race I am. You cannot do it as I look like so many.My people were driven to reservations by a dirty greedy WHITE government. Oh, i forgot to mention Barbados. Thats bad. I am from the old South and was taught their prejudice ways. I am not like that any longer as I know the truth. We are all equal in the eyes of the Lord.My face cannot be described because it is unique. Lets hear it for Ava Gardner, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley who are Melungeons. My grandmother was born in the Sneedville mountains. The old people used to sing a song to us. There's a jigeboo in the woodpile. That was racist to them ;to me now they knew the truth. The head of the Va. health dept. said people were trying to pass themselves off as white. This computer screen is white and I am nowhere near that color. To all you Melungeons out there be proud of who you are and never let anyone put you down because of your roots. I don't and I will not.

I am also descended from that mean old Hamp Greene, but as far as I know I don't have a drop of melungeon blood in me. Not that it would bother me if I did. How are you part melungeon? Surely not through the Greenes, since they came from England?

Good for you Debbie. We are who we are, and God doesnt make mistakes. I have relatives that are located in Roane Co. That have a connection to the Mulungeons through the Goins blood line and they are several different shades of brown some with strawberry blonde hair and blue or green eyes even. Really beautiful people with a beautiful heritage.
