NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stephanie Adams has never been a stranger to the media before. Adams is more famously known for being a Playboy Centerfold, a celebrity author, an active Gay Rights Advocate, a businesswoman, and winning a highly publicized $1.2M jury verdict against the City of New York, soon afterwards dedicating herself to living a more private life. But Adams has decided to step back into the spotlight for just a moment, to tell you a true and fascinating story about her family genealogy, one that traces back in time through history to an astounding contrast from slavery to royalty. And this time in travel does not really start with her, but mainly with her mission, as she puts it, in documenting and "finding Delphia."
Delphia was a Mulatto woman back in the early 1800s and was the romantic love interest of an English American man brought up in a prominent Virginia family by the name of Dr. Nathaniel Terry Green. Although Delphia was a slave at that time, Dr. Green was indeed captivated by Delphia, which is not something unheard of back then in American or even European history. According to Adams, "Many owners of slaves fell in love and had children with them, as in this particular case with Delphia. And because Dr. Green's lineage traces back to European nobility and royalty, like other family histories, there are more ethnic people of mixed race with royal ancestry than society wants to accept, acknowledge, or talk about."
Adams states that she has never been one to boast of mass produced medals and certifications. "Being a part of a genealogical organization would have meant a lot to my father, only because he would have wanted to finally connect with distant relatives that share the same ancestors. What matters most to me is sharing my father's legacy now that he has passed away, and giving the honor and respect to Delphia, a woman who loved beyond color and other imposed boundaries." Now the author of an article as well as a new book, both entitled "ANCESTRY: An Extraordinary Travel Back From Slavery To Royalty," Adams has expressed a desire to continue educating people about the importance of discovering their particular genealogy and honoring the legacy of their own individual ancestors.
