Budding newbie

Hi Everyone!
I am a newbie here and, found this site while searching for my family. My Mother is Cherokee from both sides. And, we believe Chickasaw as well.
She was placed in foster care at 11yrs and, I am trying to help her find her "roots". I am a mother of 2 little girls and, would really like to know and tell them where we came from and, I hope one day very soon that we can find out what happened with our relatives and, take pride in their journeys and, possibly be part of the community we feel so connected to.
If anyone can point me in the right direction? This sure looks like a great place to "blossom".
My relatives are mainly Morgan{paternal} and Adair {maternal}. I have some info if anyone wants to share but, still looking for most of it. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning about the culture.
Peace and Love

Welcome to pow wows.

I'm not sure what you mean by "point" you in the right direction. If you have your mother's birth cert, then go from there and track her parents and theirs through birth and death records and through the Federal Census records. I'm presuming based on your location and what you have stated that you are talking OK Cherokee's? To find them you will have to look on the Dawes rolls and see if their names, ages, parents names and siblings names match and that's where you would find it.
