My WikiTree free-space profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:James_Boone%E2%80%99s_Genealogy
I am an amateur genealogist researching my family’s roots.
I was born in December 1948 to Will and Ellen Boone, formerly Wright. I grew up in Manhattan, New York City, with my older brother, Thomas, who sadly passed away in November 2013. My father is from North Carolina and my mother is from Trelawny Parish, Jamaica.
My mother’s parents were Afro-Jamaicans of partial Indian descent and my father’s family were tri-racial. He told me that some of our relatives were enrolled members of the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Tribe and that we were of Native American descent.
I got my DNA testing done in January 2018. It shows 66% Sub-Saharan African, 21% European, 8% Western Asian & Middle Eastern, and 5% Native & Indigenous American.
In 1999, I moved from New York to Florida. I am married and have four kids.
I am a member of Mt. Herman AME Church, Fort Lauderdale, and have been attending their services since I moved.
