This profile could use updating, especially for a recent two term US President. For example in the name heading it says Aka Soetoro but no explanation given why in the bio. The profile could use a sourcing update also.

"Obama is the 11th great-grandson of John Punch, ... the first documented African to be enslaved for life in the American colonies," says Joseph Shumway, a genealogist at Ancestry.com.

...the president's white mother is a direct descendant of the first known slave in the American colonies through a family by the name of Bunch.

"We found that, through DNA testing done by members of the Bunch family, that their direct ancestors are of sub-Saharan African origin. ...

In 1640, John Punch, an African ... servant in Virginia ... escaped, was caught and sentenced to ... bondage to his master for life."

To be clear, there isn't actually any evidence that Obama was adopted by his stepfather. I'm leaving the alternate last name Soetoro there only because it was used on some school records when he lived in Indonesia. It is not his legal name.
