My mother and I have been trying to find out where we come from. My mother got as far back as my great great grandmother. I know I am part Cherokee but I have no idea how much or what tribe I am from. I have a connection to the Native American part of me that I would like to find out more about. My mother has less Cherokee than I but I have always wanted to know where she is from too because she is on this Soul Searching Journey and it would mean she finally gets answers, and besides the fact that she has different health problems than I do. When I go to the doctor and have to fill out the family history part the farthest I can go back is my grandparents. My mother tried the Ancestry.com website and she didn’t get farther than her grandma’s mother and I tried to find out about my father’s family history and I got as far as his grandfather. I want to enroll in a tribe so I can verify that I am not 100% Caucasian and that everyone who has ever made me feel worthless because I couldn’t say what race I was. We know both of my great grandmothers are full blooded Cherokee or so we have been told and it is infuriating to not know. I was once told by my family that my ancestry on my father’s side is descended from a Native American Medicine Women, if that is even remotely possible I would love to get to know who I am. If my mother and I can find out where we come from it could mean the world to us.
