January 17, 2015 by Carl Rhodes | Post a Comment | Filed in Uncategorized

One of my Rhodes ancestors came from the Island of Guernsey to Virginia in the 1600s.

The video is of hurdy gurdy player Clare Salaman, playing an old Guernesiaise folk tune.

His genome is not exactly like those of people who lived in Europe just after the ice sheets melted 10,000 years ago.
But the study suggests the earliest Europeans did contribute their genes to later populations . .See the whole story here.
