The Hunt for Genghis Khan's Tomb

Thanks to eagle eyes Rebecca Small for finding this article from Newsweek that discusses the hunt to find the tomb of the great Mongol leader Genghis Khan's tomb. It is a fascinating read that, among others, discusses the fight over whether he was Chinese or Mongolian in origin and if he is the father of the Y chromosome which has 16 million male descendants world wide.

Unfortunately, in the official history there are many pro-Chinese falsifications about the "wild nomads", "incredible cruelty of nomadic mongol-tatar conquerors", and about "a war between the Tatars and Genghis Khan” etc.
So probably not there looking for the tomb of Genghis Khan - that's it, and can not find it. Very most likely, it is in other part of Eurasia. As a matter of fact, most of the descendants of Genghis Khan and hisnative nation, living now among the Bashkirs, Kazakhs, Tatars, Uighurs and other Turkic peoples. Read a book "Forgotten Heritage of Tatars" (by Galy Yenikeyev) about the hidden real history of Tatars and their fraternal Turkic peoples. This e-book you can easily find on Smashwords company website: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/175211
There are a lot of previously little-known historical facts, as well as 16 maps and illustrations in this book.
On the cover of this book you can see the true appearance of Genghis Khan. It is his lifetime portrait, which is very little known.
Notes to the portrait from the book says: "...In the ancient Tatar historical source «About the clan of Genghis-Khan» the author gives the words of the mother of Genghis-Khan: «My son Genghis looks like this: he has a golden bushy beard, he wears a white fur coat and goes on a white horse...» [34, p. 14]. As we can see, the portrait of an unknown medieval artist in many ways corresponds to the words of the mother of the Hero, which have come down to us in this ancient Tatar story. Therefore, this portrait, which corresponds to the information of the Tatar source and to data from other sources, we believe, the most reliably transmits the appearance of Genghis-Khan...".
