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.

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.
