Wow this is very interesting!! I didn't know there could be these tests to determine exactly what lineage you are from. I know of the name Peter Branch~when I was younger, my grandfather told me a story of our ancestor Peter Branch who sailed from England and something happened, the ship sunk but he survived and swam off the coast of Massachusetts. I don't know if this is REALLY my family lineage, since my family of Branches were mostly in Georgia, but I had traced up until Elias Branch, and whose family lived in NC. But like you say of the Caribbean Islands~ I had met a man from Barbados who said many people there have our surname!!
