Searching for the Lost Colony DNA Blog Receives the Ancestor Approved Award!

The Searching for the Lost Colony DNA Blog has been selected to receive the Ancestor Approved Award! We are honored and excited.

This award is given to blogs that exhibit value by publishing well documented articles about ancestors. While the Lost Colony ancestors may not be our ancestors, we really don't know whether they are or not. In any case they are someone's ancestor's, provided they did survive after being left behind on Roanoke and with a few exceptions seemingly forgotten by civilization.

Paul Green's famous play, the Lost Colony, first presented in 1937, was responsible for the public's rediscovery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Since that time the fascination has grown. Many have written about this group and some have made great Archeological discoveries, but the Lost Colony of Roanoke DNA Project is the first effort to search for DNA evidence of these brave settlers having survived and passed on their genes to present day populations in North Carolina and other areas.

Part of our participation as a blog receiving this award is for us to publish ten things we discovered about our ancestors. In this case the ten will be represented by Lost Colony major players. One of whom, Walter Raleigh, never even set foot on Roanoke.

The first person of the ten will be Walter Raleigh because the settlement was his brainchild.

To be continued.........
