(NYT33) NEW YORK -- April 11, 2006 -- GENE-TESTS-3 -- Pearl Duncan, a descendant of Jamaican slaves pictured in New York on March 6, 2006, has identified the Scottish slave owner who was her mother's great-great grandfather through archival records. But the DNA test confirming her 10 percent British Isles ancestry gave her the nerve to contact the Scottish cousins who had built an oil company with his fortune. (Fred R.
