Just something to keep in mind when digging around...
my cuz just got done dealing with that. i have be registered since birth but my cux did not get enrolled until a few years ago. both our dad have the same parents no steps. they had my dad listed as full and my uncle as a lil under half! crazy. so i was listed as half my whole life until i had my daughter (who is 19 now and was born right after the casinos) then all of a sudden i got a card in the mail that said i am now 7/16 and that made my daughter non enroll-able for enrollment with my tribe. lol got in rosebud though.
but at the end of this i must say tired of the i am Cherokee spiel. over it.
