Rh-negative Blood, African Americans and Ancient Iberians


Small Size FRONT Canva Cover Secret Genealogy VPeople who have Rh-negative blood have a strong curiosity about where it came from. Those who have it sometimes find it unsettling but fear not, it is an inherited trait like brown or blue eyes. If you have ancestors from the British Isles, it may very well have come from them. Today’s African Americans are more genetically like European Americans than they are like their African ancestors. When the English took New Amsterdam from the Dutch, renaming it New York, the English greatly colonized the American South and their plantations brought indigenous Africans to work them, hence the English DNA in many of today’s black population. The Rh-negative blood could have come from ancestors who were Iberian fishermen who populated Spain’s coastal regions, and migrated to Britain between 4,000 and 5,000 BC.  Suellen Ocean is the author of Secret Genealogy V– Black, White and Hamite; Ancestors of Color in Our Family Trees.

Too Bad a Stop Was Put to the Arabs and the Jews


Moors from North Africa who conquered Spain and Portugal (called the Iberian Peninsula in the early 700’s) gave refuge and opportunity to the Sephardic Jews and together they created and advanced Spain’s “Golden Era”, particularly in Seville, Cordova and Toledo. Philosophy, medicine, mathematics, law and theology were discussed and studied by brilliant minds. By 1492, the Inquisition had devastated both the Moorish and Sephardic Jewish populations of Spain.
