Native American Family Research
Stories of Native American ancestry are some of the most common you'll find, especially in the South. But, are they true? Do you know how to locate the facts about your elusive ancestors who may have been Native American? Our presenter Jason R. Terrell is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and has been doing Native American family research for himself and others over 20 years. He has been a member of the Trail of Tears Association and served as Vice-Chair for the Editorial Board of the Cherokee Phoenix, the tribal newspaper for the Cherokee Nation, and writes a blog about researching Native families which can be found at www.nativefamilyresearch.com. In this session, we'll talk about the best records and strategies to get to the bottom of those family stories and dip our toes in the water to learn about what DNA can and can't reveal about our Native ancestors.

Today's meeting on Zoom Saturday, August 22, 2020. The Invitations were sent to our email list and posted on the Facebook page. Sorry that we missed a couple of you getting the Invitation.
It was agreed that the SIG should meet on the 4th Saturday of the month as that has the least conflicts with other genealogy events during the month. In that regard, our Next meeting will be on 26 SEP at 2:00 via Zoom. The agreed Topic will be the Media Workspace.
I think I figured out why the timing seemed short today. I had not enabled the Waiting Room on this meeting, in hopes it would be less of a distraction keeping track of who needed to join late. But it seems the meeting timer started as soon as the second person joined the meeting. If we use the Waiting Room, it does not start until the meeting coordinator joins, so we'll use the Waiting Room next month to maximize our time. The meeting will start as close to 2:00 o'clock as possible.
If any member has access to a paid Zoom account, that we might be able to use it would be greatly appreciated and eliminate the 40 minute restriction.
