  1. Today is May 13, 2017. Missed the previous showing of “Return to Roanoke; Search for the Seven” earlier this month. When will the Discovery Channel being replaying this again. I really want to see it!!!!

  2. Will there be more research and more shows? I think this warrants archaeological research in Oconeechee Neck, NC and you have given enough proof for Jamestown ancestry groups to maybe sponsor such We never suspected that all that John Smith wrote was actually true and we never thought they ended upstream on the Roanoke River. There was much discussion in the 1960’s & 70’s that some native Americans had blue eyes because they had ancestry from the lost colonists. Some in the high plains area near Christie, Va. at HyCo lake north of Roxboro and I have met blue eyed Lumbee from Robeson County. A simple DNA test might be of interest. There is an active Mormon group in Pembroke. They do genealogy and would know how pure their ancestry is since that time.

  3. Were the Viera brothers able to find out where the Dare stone originally was taken from? Wouldn’t that be a great discovery if they can find the same type of stone there at the Indian Creek area?
