Just saw that you are researching your family tree, I too am doing the Same
thing, it is a long process, especially if the side of the tree you are
trying to work on doesn't have that much information about it. I am doing
the English name. As my surname is English. I am married now, and of course
my Married name is Hunter.
But, I wanted to find out if there is any Cherokee blood in our lines, as I
have been told.
Well just wanted to share that with you too.
