Hello Everyone
This is my first time posting to this site. I joined this site because I am interested in finding my family heritage. I have been told my family name Chavis and family have Indian heritage and I am interested in researching my family tree. If anyone is interested in helping direct me, I would appreciate any help given.

Hi Freda, welcome to the board, there are lots of GREAT resources in the genealogy thread. The best way to search your history is start with you and work backwards.

Chavis? would that be a variation of Chavez? If so several communities share that name, could range from Pima to Guadalajaran

Anyway Good Luck and welcome

Welcome to Powwows.com Freda! If you are looking for information on genealogy then you may want to dig around in our "Ancestry and Genealogy" sub-forum: http://www.powwows.com/gathering/forumdisplay.php?f=114 The first thread title "Genealogy Resources" is filled with links and information that may be of interest to you.

Check out our other forums as well and of course feel free to post and ask questions.

We also have just relaunched Powwow TV; which is now loaded with even more videos on a variety of native topics than ever before. http://tv.powwows.com/

When you are all done for the day drop in on the RedHorse Cafe thread for some free virtual food and beverages http://www.powwows.com/gathering/showthread.php?t=4380 - you may want to skip ahead to the last page of that thread as it's 1910 pages long so far...

Welcome to the site Freda! Doing family research is challenging, I've been doing it for almost twenty years and still haven't found anything on paper of my great, great grandmother being full-blood Cherokee that was told to me by a great aunt. I've gotten pretty far back, 1850, but can't find where they were before then.
Sometimes I'll be looking for one family member and find another one and get off track of where I started....lol!

Good luck on your search & welcome to the site!
