My ancestors were a mixture of warriors and traders in ancient Aro confederacy. I've also visited some graves dating back to at least the 1700's.

@OP, we're supposed to be descendants of the Isrealis, according to folks. For some reason, I haven't been piqued enough to research for myself. I don't know whether that is supposed to make me feel superior or inferior to anyone. I just know that I like to think of myself first as a Nigerian and then a world citizen. At any rate whatever I have become today has been between me and God, no one of them ancestors added anything good or bad to my life, except maybe my skin color and country of origin.

I know many Somalis and none can trace there ancestry even 200 yrs ago. all your geneologies are mostly forged and you try to connect with arabs.

^^ grin grin It's not a competition.
Beside we ain't obsessed with that, so it shouldn't surprise you that most of us don't care, just scroll up.
Re: How Far Back Can You Trace Your Ancestry? by Blyss: 5:11pm On Mar 31, 2013
Yeah, that's no surprise considering that you'all have pretty much allowed all of the ancient structural remenents of past empires crumble to nothingness, leading most of the world today to believe that the sub continent has never developed any thriving great civilizations. For example, the towering great moats of Benin City raved about in the Portuguese documentations of their travels to the ancient city.. are basically all gone, due to primarily a lack of care to maintain them for future generations to admire and marvel at.

All that's left are some minute abstract outer ring sections in which are buried under trash and jungle thickets; end result is that today Edo girls are out in mass all over Europe selling thier azzes, do to a lack of education as to the great power people they descend from. What a shame that you African don't cherish your histories as all of the great powers today do, hence the reason they are currently great powers.

Your history is the root of your pride and strength as a people, a lack of respect for it will certainly lead you into self destruction, hence Africa and the PIGS.
