Finding the "Lost Colony"
Researchers propose to use DNA testing to find find descendants of the Lost Colony at Roanoke.
I wonder why the story omits where you find likely descendants. Among the local Indian tribes, of course. As I recall there is one tribe which has members with blonde hair, beards, and English names that go back centuries. When the supply ships returned, they found "Croatan" carved on the log wall. The arrangement had been that if the colonists relocated, they would carve their destination there, and put a cross above it if they relocated under compulsion. There was no cross, and the Croatans were a tribe to the north. The message was simple: they'd voluntarily gone with the Croatans. No one really made a search for the colonists until decades later, by which point the tribe had moved inland. I'm banking they starved out, the Croatans took them in, and they intermarried and became tribal members. More data.
