Ancestry

Please take a look at my profile photos. I'm not sure about the connection with Native Americans, and/or which tribes. Could I get some advice as to where to begin the investigation and trace my Native American heritage. The current photos are from my mother's side of the family. I also have some relatives on my father's side, but haven't located any images of them yet. Thanks in advance.

My professional take on your family's ancestry:



But seriously, have you considered doing something like AncestryDNA/Genealogy and 23andme?

Those pictures weren’t really any help. If I were you, I would take a DNA test first. If you do show Native that would also show Native ancestors who could help you learn history.

Something you need to keep in mind if you do take a DNA test. It will only show that you have the markers for ancestry, not which nation they are from.

Yes, I have done the Ancestry DNA and have not been told of "any" Native American" markers. So, maybe you're right, "just another cracker"!!!!
