I am trying to learn more about my family’s history. My mother is from Alexandria or Shreveport, La. My father as far as I know, he is still living. He was a child Bible prodigy. His father was a minister. My parents were married in Nevada sometime in 1963 or 1964. I was born in Las Vegas. My brother, who is deceased, was Emanuel Christopher Bass Jr.
Tracing Your Roots: A white sister and brother both found a small amount of African ancestry in DNA test results, and now they have questions.
Dear Professor Gates:According to 23andMe, my brother and I each have 0.1 percent sub-Saharan African ancestry. But instead of being at the identical spot on the chromosome, his segment and my segment are next to each other.
