A road trip to Oklahoma revealed some very interesting family roots.
One of my dear friends was able to document his heritage as a member of the Cherokee Nation.
Key to his documentation is the proof and claim a family member could be traced all the way back to the ‘Trail of Tears’.
The Trail of Tears is the march of native Americans to reservation lands in the state of Oklahoma.
Prove a family member was a part of this march and you can claim your native American heritage.
On a quiet weekend get-a-way it was good to experience a new adventure.
For those seeking more information tracing their family roots, you may find these statements interesting.
In the Kansas City, Missouri area, there is a genealogical library in the city of Independence, MO., the hometown of President Harry S. Truman.
On occasion it is more effective to visit the state of a relative’s birth in pursuit of your family tree.
The county seat has birth records, marriage licensure, death records, sales agreements and miscellaneous documents that make your endeavors finding relatives much easier.
Listening to Donald Trump on the Internet, you can tell from his conversation with an interviewer he feels people in charge of land and finance have very little to no resemblance to the original native Americans.
Look for Donald Trump to throw his hat in the ring as a republican presidential candidate in the next election scheduled for 2016.
Mr. Trump also feels he will be able to close the door on those who scam for tax payer dollars falsely claiming their rights as native Americans.
The friend we are travelling with had no problem verifying relatives as members of the Cherokee tribe.
At an earlier point in time he even went to Washington, D.C, in order to claim his original heritage.
There are many tribes on the council of Indian nations.
They make a difference in the lives of their fellow tribesmen.
Visit a native American reservation and talk to the people that are the original descendants of this land.
You will hear interesting stories about the heritage of this country and discover in the process some interesting family roots.
