Is it worth it for me to pay for the ancestry database for my surname considering im 100% African and have no other race in me? (Atm😜)
My friends said it wont work because ancestry.com is mainly for people outside of Africa or if their surname sounds European.

It'll cost you a fortune because you have to pay extra for records outside the UK and Ireland, and I don't think there is much on there for Africa generally speaking. Have a look on the free account. It'll give you an idea of what you can get, but won't let you see details.

That's a bummer. It's been ok for me but hit a dead end in Ireland for both sides now (all but inevitable, I suspect a mix of the '22 fire snd atrocious record keeping in the first place). I need to do outside digging about to see what I can find. Not sure the site will be of much use to me going forward.
