I am a descendent of Cherokee and African Natives.
I am my family groit.I have been the receptor for my family stories since early childhood. I seem to have been the child that was allowed to remain in company while grown folks discussed family business.As a result I have a wealth of information that has been confirmed by meeting distant relatives and adding my tidbits of information to their tidbits of information. Just last year I was given the name of Charlotta or Lottie Thornton and was told this person was a child of African and Native parents. Yes it is true.There are sites that will charge for your authentication as a member of the tribe.But just this week I found Lottie and her parents on the Miller Roll it cost me nothing but time. I must send for the Dawes Roll Jacket. Now there is no guarantee it will do any good but it is encouraging to see this website.
I want to have as much information as possible to share with my family future griots.I want to help where I can.
