    Vast quantity of the lost tribes have been spread through out the ancient world and they have been mixed with the early European tribes that flooded Europe in the 3-9 AD centuries (Very prominent evidence excavated in Ireland), Indian Americans (North and South), Chinese tribes along through the “silk way” and some African tribes (the Bushmen?). It’s amazing!!!!
    We sure will see some day that we all have some Jewish blood in our veins!!!!
