I fully agree with Deena. I thought genealogy was documentation, documentation, documention. Without documentation, all you have is a fairy tale. A good genealogist usually tries to separate fact from fiction. I suppose a lot of people would give their eye teeth to be "Indian", because of gov't and Indian grants and privileges. I have had a person tell me that they had heard they had Indian blood, and they would like to know how to go about proving it because they wanted to send their kids to college as Indians, otherwise they could not afford the cost of college. I do not understand the obsession of being "Indian" and suddenly talking about "my people". I think that is an insult to present day Native Americans. You are what you are, and suddenly finding that you are Indian, Jewish, Polish, Russian, Eskimo, or plain old mongrel does not change the fact that you are what you are now--at the present time, not what your ancestors were. I am just happy finding the information about a great-great whatever, and if they happen to be different---great. Every one wants to be proud of their ancestors and find nobles, kings, queens, Indian Chiefs, but I often wonder, Would our ancestors be proud of US???
