Türk ve Osmanlı kökenli Meluncan soykardeşlerimizin hepsine Türkiye/Zonguldak şehrinden selam ediyorum..Osmanlı İmparatorluğu Devleti döneminde Amerika kıtasına göç eden Türkler Türk asıllı Meluncanlar Bugünkü Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Devletinin Göç Kayıtlarını inceleyebilirler.Bunun İçin Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Devletinin Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi Başkanlığına Bir dilekçe ile başvuruda bulunmanızı ve dilekçenizi de TBMM Dilekçe Komisyonu Başkanlığına iletmenizi öneriyorum saygı ve sevgilerimi sunarım

My Y-DNA says Native American although earliest known paternal ancestor Charles William MARTIN came from Magdeburg, Prussia born c1780. It is assumed he or earlier generations were taken into European slavery and assumed the surname of their master. He came to England via France c1800 and married a white English women in 1813. I have a family photograph taken c1870 which reveals a dark skinned man who was the son of that Prussian ancestor. I am white English, although earlier generations continued to show a tanned completion. One such individual was known as "Darkie Martin".

I have no Y-DNA matches through Family Tree DNA and wonder whether my paternal ancestry is Melungeon?

My father's family Is from western Louisiana. My aunt researched our family and discovered we were Redbones. I found learning a bit more of the meaning behind melungeon to be very interesting.
