please choose a message thread for this conversation. i would appreciate following one thread, rather than several posts where you tell your family story and give information.

if you have another ancestor in a different branch of the family, that is the time to start a new thread.

i need DATES for these people. spouses. children. specific location.

if you don’t know approximate dates, then you have to back up a generation.

do you have your birth certificate and your parents’ birth certificates?

since original enrollees usually had to agree to live under the authority of the tribe, you should look at the locations of the family, the members, dates, and see if there is a match to an original enrollee of a nearby tribe.
