        Here's a link to a new book that's been recently published on the same subject (I wrote it) and in the back lists many websites for research purposes and many of them are free.

          Here is a copy of the Review of the book that the EBC newspaper, the Cherokee One Feather did on the book--at the top which is cut off is a full picture of the book. They did a wonderful review of the book. (Okay, I hope it came trough.LOL)

              Okay, Okay Josiah

              Another of my favorite sites to get info in is Rootsweb.com and they work with Ancestry.com sometimes and that one is actually free so far.

              Dang that site has all kinds of info and you really do have to just go looking and searching through it. It also has some family stories and things like that. Now family stories I am careful about unless it's obtained through a family Bible or from an old newspaper or County records book. But they sure are alot of fun to read.

                  Neling, start with yourself, work your way back and follow the paper trail. Although family stories are fun to listen to and talk about, many of them have been distorted from generation to generation. No on purpose, but just human nature or forgetfulness. It happens. It can be confusing the farther back you get, but stick to the paper trail, it's the only thing that's out there that we can go on since we don't live in those times anymore

                    I think I have gone as far as I can on the paper trail, until or unless I come across some new information.

                    Some documents I cannot access. I would have to pay a monthly fee for the site, and that is something we can't afford right now.

                    Sometimes libraries will offer access to certain paid sites to their patrons, but you have to be in the actual building to use them, using their computers. If I ever get a break from the confusion our lives are in right now, I will pay a visit armed with all the information I have gathered so far.

                    I think I will order that book you suggested, as a birthday present to myself.

                          1. I sugest you make a list of your maternal and paternal grandparents on both sides. 2. If you know where they were born try to get birth and death certificates. 3. If they were NDN and possibly had land go to the Bureau of land management and type in their name and State where they were lkiving. 4. Also check with the court house to see if there is a will or probate. 5. If they were NDN Federal Recgon, and on the rolls find out where those records are being kept and call or write to them.

                          Also the Mormons kept track of a lot of records so thats the Later Day Saints Site

                            Thanks LaughingWaterWI. I have already done some of that. It is just my dad's side of the family I am looking for now. My mom's side is pretty well researched back to the country of their origin. I discovered that my dad's family always seems to disappear from the records at some point. I have managed to trace them back to my great-great-great grandparents, who were born in North Carolina.

                            I have used that Genealogy.com forum before. It has put me in contact with a few distant relatives.

                            I can't seem to access the Mormon site.

                            Here is an odd site which I have sometimes found useful:

                            http://www.findagrave.com/index.html

                            I use this to search:

                            http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi

                              Cool, and then you can butt bump someone off a bench sometime too.

                                Does anyone else find it odd that the google ads in the forums list assort native crafts, sites, and.... halloween costumes?

                                I had been flipping through the ads at the bottom of the threads and noticed it. How and why did google lump that in there?
