Where Do I Come From
All my life my mother told me about my great grandmother. Supposedly she had enough Native American blood that she could have gotten land. But she was a widow and did not want to stigmatize the family. My great aunt wrote that her mother said the family was on a certain reservation, but two tribe, the Chickasaw and the Choctaw shared the reservation. The family name was Anders, also seen as Andrews, Anderson, etc. I haven’t been able to go further back that her grandfather in the early 1800′s. Several years ago, in an attempt to settle the question once and for all, I had a DNA test done that shows I have Native American blood, but I’d really like to know what tribe I’m descended from.
