    I'm trying to find more about my native American blood, but the things I know is that the tribe was out of Canada/maine and that my ancestor was the chiefs daughter who married a French trapper. ive tried ancestry.com but that's kinda confusing

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Do you have any more information that would help narrow your possibilities down, i.e. the approximate timeframe/which generation your ancestor was from? I imagine quite a few tribes lived in the area you mentioned; so people will need more to go on for specific answers. Otherwise, the best way to start is trace your family generation by generation starting with you, then your parents, grandparents, etc. There is a Geneology Forum on here; you may want to post there as well.

        My name is Cassi, I'm 24. My grandfather passed away in 2003, my grandmother has alzheimer's, and my mother is now in declining health.

        My father was never very fond of my mother's heritage (because he was a tool). I have a new baby now though, and now I really want to embrace my mother's...

        First let me start off by saying that I do not want any type of money, government assistance or anything else for being an Native American. What I am looking for is knowledge about my heritage. I have read everything online and in books, but to me learning about my heritage will...
