I recently decided that I should research my Native American lineage. My maternal grandmother was 1/4 Cherokee, according to information from relatives, and that would make me 1/16. The quest will not be easy as that the Native American names of my ancestors are not listed in the Wingfield genealogy.
However, I have talked with a Cherokee historian on the reservation in NC, and with a Native American who lives nearby who is experienced in researching such information. As I have time, I will work on this quest, and will keep updating my discoveries or attempts.
I am enjoying reading about information of the origins of the Native Americans, etc., which can be found here.
