>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Interesting. I noticed this phenomenon, which seems to be more than just a heated debate...................wonder what provokes such intense emotional reactions. There are a vast number of Melungeon sites on the web. Perhaps some of the abreaction is a function of the uncertainty as to the group's origins (at least 7 distinct hypotheses, each with their own supporters). At least I can "rest easy" knowing that my lot were Six Nations, Lower Mohawk - there is no controversy (thanks to volumes of excellent contemporary records kept by obsessive British authorities in Canada).
