Sentient, thank you. I looked and looked for your article and had not given up. You retrieved it and I am so happy to see it again. You did the story great justice.
When 10 Million Africans Died Of One King's Greed

I wish I could find other books that move me like this one. I think I'll reread it. A good book deserves more than one read. Even though that book details a heinous crime / crimes against humanity, there is heroism, courage, humanism, and self sacrifice as well.
I would love to find a family of unknown relatives. In Africa or anywhere else. There is almost nothing remaining of my own family. Except the family of humanity, which should be enough.
My grandfather was a soldier in the Philippine-American war in 1907. He used to bring out old photos of a lady who he claimed he married there. I was too young and unsophisticated to ask the questions I should have asked, and know nothing else about her. Soldiers in many places took a bride, and abandoned her on their return. Sad and abusive, but true. Plus, he often told tales to get reactions, so I don't know if true. But maybe I have some distant cousins in that island nation.
Wow - I am reading the interesting posts here. I didn't know that about the Denoo's Joan.
