The document also deals with interactions that the Mandinka from Kaabu had with other communities during their migrations that resulted in their adoptions of new family names. The manuscript was copied from the original, which is kept in Kaabu-Kansala in Guinea Bissau, the capital of the former Mandinka Kingdom of Kaabu (1537-1867).en_US
