Ming Dynasty Admiral Zheng He Update

Amazing, China did DNA testing on a family in Kenya that per oral history was decended from the crew of Admiral Zheng He and had Chinese features, and the testing validated this.  China is sending an archaelogist expedition to see if they can find the remains of some Chinese ships from his fleet that sank there. Admiral Zheng He may have also reached California.
