I'm getting on in years now and I know so little about my heritage. My grandfather was named Sam Brown. He lived in Burke County, Georgia. I would love to learn all I can about him and my ancestors.

My grandmother had a  brother named W.H. Hill. He married a woman called Georgia Scott. Uncle W.H. was born in Hancock County, Georgia, but later moved away. I am not sure where his wife was born, but I think her family lived in Warrenton, Georgia. Sometimes my mother would tell me about them. I remember her saying that Aunt Georgia was kin to the Indians. She even described her appearance and that of her mother. I would like to know more about Aunt Georgia's ancestors.

« Last post by chief on March 09, 2018, 08:52:23 PM »
Have you heard your ancestors mention Native American heritage? Researchers report that one out of every ten black Americans have Native American roots. One interviewer of former slaves reported that all the former slaves she questioned claimed Native American ancestry.Clearly, this is a topic warranting further research. Please participate in our poll and share your family's oral tradition about Native American heritage. You must register to participate in the poll. Poll closes April 30, 11:59 pm. Poll results will be posted on forum and can be viewed by all.

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.
BIBLE, Joel:1:3.

Many years ago, I began a journey that would change my life forever. I wanted to do something memorable on my birthday. That desire lead me to the local genealogy library where I began to research my family history. Since that day, I've learned much, shared much, and grown much. Thus, I have recorded nine generations of my family history in America. As the years passed,  I saw the world of genealogy advance technologically and open its doors to "people of color". In 1998, I pioneered one of the first websites for black genealogy in Georgia. So now I bring you,  a place to "help U find YOU".

To access the full contents of the forum (all surnames, polls,etc.), you must register. Thank you and once again Welcome.
