Re: By Blood Ancestors
In Response To: Re: By Blood Ancestors ()
I am trying to look at this by blood ancestry problem at all angles.
According to your 4th paragraph, you stated that the descendants today have no recourse under the current rules to prove they have blood. What is your definition of a collateral lineage? Apparently through the dead man's siblings?
Suppose the by blood man had children by his freedmen spouse and he is listed on the by blood roll. You stated if the dead man's parents had lived to enroll, then descendants can jump to them.
Suppose the by blood man and his parents are listed as by bloods, can descendants of freedmen jump to the dead man's parents, and if so which nations would apply?
There are some real tricky situations when it comes to proving by blood relationships. There are by bloods that are not acknowledging their freedmen relatives.
I will accept your final comments to my post and end this particular post.
