You have to start with yourself and work backwards going back and finding where your ancestor's were. The Rolls won't do you any good until you get to an ancestor who might have been in the area that was Cherokee and the Gov documented them on a Roll Just because you find a name that may match, that's not where it ends at all, that's only the beginning. Then you must match and make sure that that is the same person as your ancestor, age, birth date, death date, marriage(s), parents and siblings. So it's not just finding an ancestor on a roll and yeah, Pigheaded is right that if it's only 60-80 years back it's not that hard at all. But you first have to get there.

Family stories are a dime a dozen and as fun as they are to listen to and think about, they are just stories until you find to documentation that verifies it all as being accurate. Don't just go looking for one thing or one ancestor, you might miss out on a lot of really good information about your family, not all of it being or having to do with NDN or Cherokee, but some really neat info is available on someone's ancestry.

As for the statement of "Drives us crazy".LOL It's a short trip for some.

Hope this helps and like I said you've been given some really good advice.

Good luck.

lol the most advice given was to talk to you! that is pretty darn good advice! good to see you tiger
