Brief Update


I know it appears I've abandoned my blog, but nothing could be further from the truth. I've been doing some in depth research on a Cherokee man born circa 1770 and will soon be able to share the biographies of him and most of his children. It's taken a great deal of time to research the family, but that time and effort has been well worth it. I can't wait to share these stories and lineages.

Also, if you haven't seen it yet, please read the article from the LA Times on the white contractors who pretended to be Cherokee so they could get contracts intended for minorities. Two of the groups in the article are the Northern groups featured in the Gardner Green series/The Birth of a Fake Tribe. The article exposes one reason fake tribes and false claims of Cherokee ancestry are harmful. A link to the article is below.

Claiming to be Cherokee, contractors with white ancestry got $300 million by Adam Elmahrek, Paul Pringle
 
More genealogy and stories of our ancestors coming soon. 

Thank you for your patience. 
 
Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
