I am having a hard time seeing the Romani connection however other than the gypsy lifestyle.

Hi everyone,

Regarding gypsy heritage. The more I read, the more I believe Esther Campbell and William Lambert and other family members to be gypsies, but NOT of Romani descent. One piece of evidence is that I am 100% of European descent as per DNA results. There are gypsy groups that are of European descent - I am trying to figure out our specific gypsy families but as you know hitting brike walls due to lack of records - another clue to gypsy heritage. As Campbell is a Scottish name, I am going to start there. Let me know if you figure anything out.
