According to the findings of the American magazine "Gypsy Roma Traveller", Elvis Presley has Romani roots. His ancestors were Roma which lived in Germany.
They migrated in the USA in the early 18th Century. Also, the magazine states that the maiden name of Elvis's mom was Smith, and as they claim, that name was common amongst the last names of British Roma. But David Eltire, writer and researcher states that Elvis never mentioned the chance that he has Romani roots, and that is why they wouldn't know if it's true that he has Romani roots.
There aren't any notable things which could confirm that Elvis has Romani roots. It's a fact that if someone had Romani relatives 300 years ago don't confirm that the person is Romani„ says Eltir.
But also he states that before he was famous his roots are German and also his German surname which he had in that time was a typical Romani and Sinti surname from Germany - Preseler. Also, besides Elvis Presley, with declared Romani roots are the famous names such as Charlie Chaplin, the British artist Michael Cane, the American Hollywood star Rita Hayworth and many more.
