I know that and what you just said corroborates with what I said. The oldest lineages on the island are mostly east of the border with the exception of the French (I'm sure some of the oldest French lineages on that island are still in Haiti) and the Polish (almost all Poles that moved to the island did so in Napoleon's army in the early 1800's and settled in Haiti.)

yes the documentary posted mentions the polish and has interviews with some people of old french lineage. There are some who have french roots since before the revolt of 1804

Is Gilbert Bigio still the richest man in Haiti? He's a White Jewish Haitian.

You're sure that she is Haitian? That skin doesn't look as if she was born with heavy sun exposure.

Her parents must really insist that she stays out of the sun. Most Caribbean whites either have a definite tan, or a definite ruddiness.

Still skeptical. Does she descend exclusively from whites who lived in Haiti prior to its independence? Or to a more recent immigrant?

The video looks like she has somewhat of a tan. That picture looks like it might be a photoshop picture.
