Black – California ǀ Black ǀ African American
California African Americans are blacks sampled from California, where they compose about 6 percent of the state population. Twenty-six of the first 46 settlers of Los Angeles in 1781 were black or mulatto.
The Black - California population data represent autosomal DNA samples from 100 African-American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_American) individuals in the state of California (see http://www.blackpast.org/?q=tree/California/California and http://www.blackpast.org/?q=timelines/african-american-history-american-west-timeline). Samples were provided by the California Department of Justice, the Orange County (Calif.) Sheriff-Coroner Crime Laboratory, and the Oregon State Police.
