Help if possible

Been trying to trace my family's lineage back due to the claim of Cherokee and going through the line I've only seen members of that side of my family being where the Shawnee were at in West Virginia. Guess I'm looking for any advice in trying to confirm if it's Cherokee or Shawnee

Itís been my expierence that someone in the family knows who the Indian was. Once you find that person see what that tribes enrollment requirements. It is possible to be a descendant of a Indian but not able to join the tribe.

Some libraries have a descent genealogy area. You might find what you are looking for there.

I didn't know libraries had that. I'll be sure to check it out and see what I can find.
