Newsletter Volume 1, No. 1 September 1989


"Today, Turkish scholars have verified that the name Melunjun was applied and used freely by early Ottoman Turk-ish sailors. The modem Turkish people recognize this term which meant cursed soul or abandoned by God. How ironic in view of the traumatic history of the Melungeons in America. Also, Spanish Historian, Eloy Gal-legoes, found the name in early Spanish Folk songs."
