Anyway, it's impossible for me to have Native American ancestry. That
is, of course, unless a bunch of Native Americans sailed into a
Bulgarian, Black Sea harbor ages ago.

Don't group all Native Americans as Mongoloid, if you tell a
Cherokee, Creek, Siminole or any number of other Eastern or
Southwestern tribes that they are of Mongoloid decent and they might
just smack you up side of the head. Only the central plains tribes
will tell you they came from the North, which is where they would
have come from if they crossed over from Asia.

I believe there would be few of us who have US ancestors back to late
1700's, who would not have some Native American blood. The problem
would still be to prove how, through whom, and how much!
