Can someone tell me how to target a search for a family name among the discussions on this forum? I don’t see a general search function. Thank you.

the tribe does not have a search function for the messageboard. i have also asked about it. so far, it is an unfunded project.

BTW, Can you tell me how I might contact a daughter who submitted a biographical entry for her father, who is an original enrollee, and my ancestor? It says “submitted by…” but there is no apparent email address. I’d love to get in touch with her to share info.

i answered this question. maybe i answered the post on the other forum. when people put their question on both forums, they have to check both forums to see if someone answered.

the lady is deceased. but there are clues to her family in obituaries. see your local public library/interlibrary loan program for getting a copy of the obituaries.

then you might be able to use whitepages.com or google search to find relatives.

Hi, My name is Margaret S. Luthy. I have been trying to find my father’s family that lives in Oklahoma. I have been unsuccessful in finding them. I thought you could help me to find them. My maiden is Margaret S. Farris. The last name Farris is the family I am looking for.

no dates, no specific location, no spouse.
farris is a common name.

i don’t know if you are trying to find information because you are adopted or the circumstance.

you should start a new thread with your request and be sure to put your father’s name in the subject line.

people tend to read the subject and see if they would be interested in the subject enough to read more.

farris happens to also be a location in oklahoma.

just to give you an idea about how many people live in OK with that surname:

Technically, you can do this with Google. It’s not pretty, but I’ve been able to find a few things. Just go to Google and format your search like this:
