|MadSci Network: Genetics|
I am researching my family genealogy. Three of my parents four children are RH negative, yet my mother was RH positive. My father died before I thought about it, and I don't know his blood type. He may have been part Native American or from some other darker skined group. He was from the Appalachian Mountain area. I have traced his ancestors back to the first white settlers in Virginia. I am reading "Coal Miners Daughter" by Loretta Lynn. She was raised about 20 miles from my father's birth place. Her paternal grandmother has been reported to be a relative of my father's. She stated in the book that she is part Cherokee and RH neg.
Re: Is the RH negative blood type more prevalent in certain ethnic groups?
