I found out something fairly interesting that I thought you'd be interested in. I did a DNA study through 23andme and asked about other who have mtDNA B2b to say where they are from. A couple of folks were from Arawak lines in Brazil and one was Wapashana Arawak from Guyana/Northern Brazil.
Hey Tim, Thanks for the chat recently. Remember how you said that you didn't believe in coincidences? I was listening to some of the video I had recorded of my uncle carlos about my grandparents and it had escaped me before because I wasn't familiar with Arcatao but when I listened again I realized he was saying that my grandmother's side of the family is from Arcatao. https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/115089406648130386574/albums/5702944139495865073/5832318867695480802 The plot thickens. It makes me want to go there and interview any family that is left there. According to my uncle we still have some land there. muchas gracias Tim!
In El Salvador we refer to El Monte as the jungle/woods, it doesn't matter if there are mountains or not. That's an interesting diference with Spain Spanish.
Saludos Tim, I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your posts and research. My family had to flee from El Salvador in the 80s. I continue to reconnect with my past and these stories of the ancestors having gatherings near my home town of Suchitoto give me great joy. Please keep the stories coming. p.s. I'd love to interview you also for some research I'm doing.
