Hello, My ancesters are from Lousiana. The family name is McClellan. My great grandfather, Van(buren) McClellan and Mulfie McClellan were from Clairborne, LA. My grandfather, Oren /Oran McClellan was their son. Oren/Oran and his wife Lillian McClellan lived in Bernice, LA and later fled to Oklahoma due to some kind of conflict with the slave master's son. That's about all that I know about my family. Can anyone help me with more information? I would really appreciate it. Thank you. [email protected] wrote: In a message dated 07/09/05 6:44:44 A.M.

Indian Rolls . ============= Original Message ----- Sent: Wednesday, July 06, 2005 Do you know if the Indian Tribes in La., have a roll with all their members, / iI looking for my indian heritage,Have indian on all sides but haven't found what kind, think it will be sev. different kinds, my people were in Va.,Sc, Ga, Al, Tn, Ar. ,Ok,Ms. Thanks You can find some on the internet, but the best thing to do is go to your local or nearest LDS Family History Center. They may have some rolls in stock or they can order the rolls you need at a small price. They rent for about $3.50 per roll of film which just about pays for postage. You have to read the film at the FHC. The staff at the FHC should be able to help you. For more information on doing specific research, go to _www.familysearch.com_ (http://www.familysearch.com) . Click on "get step-by-step research help...." click search by subject. click N for Native American, and etc. These research guides are put out by the LDS church and you can read or down load them to your computer. As far as I know, Louisiana does not have a complete listing of NA members on film or otherwise. Many NAs did not register and were assimilated into other races including white, black, and otherwise. If you are searching the census, remember: In some of the earlier census (1870 La.) you were listed Black or White. Many NA were listed as Black because of their darker skin, so were French, Spanish, and in some cases, pure White/English with no mixed bloodline (which was unusual as most of us have some mixed blood of some kind!)
