That seems to be the problem. I traced my lines back to their original countries for say two/three hundred years. None are African American. They come from Spain, Balearic Islands, England, and France in the middle 1850s. The Spanish Ponce de Leon line is the oldest. He was governor of St Augustine in 1650..His daughter's family left Florida for Cuba and married into the Solis/Perez and Ronquillo families. The Perez were from the Canaries, the Ronquillo and Solis from Spain. Abt 1800 they left Cuba for Louisiana. Thanks to the French and Spanish it was very easy to document the family here in Louisiana. I can find no African American. If I could I would not be so surprised. I am trying to find where in Africa the 7% comes from.
I reread the original statement on my dna test it it does say Canary Islands. I am so open to suggestions.
