    1. Re: [NA-CALIFORNIA] Miwok Indian
    2. KENNTH JOANNE HARRIS
    3. Hi Sandy, So far as I know, if you're going to do a mitochondrial DNA (mother's side) test, it might show you one of four or five places in Siberia that your ancestors came from. As far as pinpointing specific tribes, I don't see how that's possible. For one thing, nowadays we are very concerned with who is a member of which tribe. It wasn't necessarily that way in pre-white man days. I am not a scientist but have undergone some paternal DNA testing for my own genealogy purposes. I don't know much about it, but I do know that results are far from pinpoint accuracy. Finally, remember please that my opinion is worth exactly what you have paid for it. Nothing.

    1. [NA-CALIFORNIA] Gaffigan - Amos
    2. I was hopeful that someone could do a few look-ups to see if there is anything to fill in the picture on the GAFFIGANs. When they first came over from Scotland my great grandfather John Amos Gaffigan was only a little guy. His mother, Mary Amos GAFFIGAN (Goffigan, McGaffigan; they knew it was spelled something like that), brought the children to New York, went on to New Haven, Conn., and then to the isthmus. We don't even know how they got there. I have hit the proverbial brick wall on anything about Mary and her (late?) husband Patrick. So, I thought that we could double back and find out something about her sisters, her probable sponsors: In 1867 she arrived in San Francisco aboard the Moses Taylor from Nicaragua with the two boys and went to live with her sister Mrs. CHARLES CAMPBELL. According to his journal that was at #6 Thompson Avenue in the South Park in San Francisco. Next door, at # 5, lived Miss ANNIE AMOS, while the Crenan family was at #2. All of this was supposed Thompson Avenue. After the 1868 Earthquake Mary and her two children went across the Bay with her sister Annie to live at Dr. LAMBERT's hostelry in Alameda, at Encinal and High Streets. They moved back to San Francisco, into the home of a Mr. James H (or A) O' CONNELL, who had a stationery and book store in San Francisco, at 310 5th Street. Does it provide anyone any clues? j.j.carroll@earthlink.net

    1. Joaquin Soto
    2. Diana Neal
    3. I am seeking information on the father of Joaquin Soto, b. presumably, in Los Angeles in 1822. I have seen some undocumented information that he was the son of Guillermo Soto, one of the soldiers who took part in the journey of the pobladores to the new settlement of LA. Can anyone confirm or negate this for me? I understand that he (Joaquin) married Petra Rodriguez, and that she may have been NA. Guillermo himself, also, reputedly married a NA woman at San Gabriel mission. I would greatly appreciate any help sorting out the details of these possible connections. Many thanks. Diana

    1. RE: Linguistic Families
    2. jwhite
    3. NA Nations is proud to release the "Indian Linguistic Families of America" to our growing website. Covering only those tribes north of Mexico, this book can assist you in discovering your Native American ancestors. For example, in the Algonquian Family it lists 35 different tribes as members, some of which have changed over the years. The listing however might give you a clue as to why we often have people say their family was Blackfoot but lived in Pennsylvania or New York. Most of us think of the Blackfoot Nation as being in Montana or Canada. But the Algonquian as a linguistic family, are members of both. The reader should remember while perusing this manuscript, that it was based on known facts in 1891, and that those facts have not been updated or corrected. The book also provides you with additional reading on many of the tribes. We have linked the tribes to AccessGenealogy's Indian history pages, giving you the opportunity to check back and forth for additional histories and customs. http://www.nanations.com/linguistic_families.htm Please enjoy and pass the message along to others.

    1. Susan Lucky, Wiyot, Humboldt County
    2. My great-great-great grandmother, Susan Lucky (? - Lucky was either her nickname or maiden name) was born 1840 in Humboldt County, Calif. A massacre of her tribe (Wiyot) took place in 1860. In 1864 she gave birth to Mary; Mary's father was a white man. The father did not marry her, though--his family gave another man, George Gorham, possibly a sailor and/or 49er (born 1819 in Massachusetts, had tattoos on both of his wrists) a ranch to marry her. I am trying to find out more information about this situation, especially who my great-great-great grandfather was (the man who impregnated, but did not marry, Susan), and whether or not Susan's maiden name was, in fact, Lucky, or if that was just a nickname (in which case she may have got it after the 1860 massacre). Can anyone help/does anybody know anything about this? Clay Shannon, author of the novel "the Wacky Misadventures of Warble McGorkle" Now available on amazon.com: http://tinyurl.com/ysran

    1. Mary Big Prairie
    2. The Ramblings
    3. I'm looking for any information on a Native American woman who went by the name of Mary Big Prairie. Mary is the English name she took and Big Prairie was a married name. She married a Charlie Big Prairie from the Klamath River Area. She had a daughter named Nancy Sala or Soutus. Nancy's father wasTolowa and possibly went by the name of Satchawa as shown on an 1860 census of the Klamath Reservation. Nancy was born in 1849 possibly in Big Flat, Del Norte County, California. At the age of 12, in 1861, she married a Samuel Wilson, a packer who was living in Big Flat, Del Norte County, California. Nancy had an aunt named Chenno or Chenoon who lived in the Orleans and Weitchpec area at one time. Chenno or Chenoon was possibly the sister of Mary Big Prairie. In 1898, Mary Big Prairie took up Allotment No. 124-T where she lived on until her death in 1905. There was a probate on Mary Big Prairie but I don't know which county or court it was handled in. Any records on this woman could possibly be located in Del Norte, Humboldt or Siskiyou county. We've been stuck here at this bend in our genealogy search for a long time and thought it was time to ask for some help. The allotments of the Hoopa Valley Reservation seems to be a key to who was where at various times in tribal history. In all our research, we've come across many allotments but the information behind those allotments is almost nil. We need to have the archives examined by someone who can view the originals or the microfilm. We not only need to verify the allotment on Mary Big Prairie but find out how extensive the files are on each allotment, maybe naming other names or locations. We need information on the following allotments, all believed to be on the Hoopa Valley Square or Extension. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #52 to Twerup Sawlas Wanteen (R&R) (unknown the meaning of R&R). Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #56 to Pete Sowtas (Sontash) and wife Kate. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #57 to Billie Sontash. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #90 to Robert Ferry, nephew to Milo Perry, cousin to Blagdens. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #124T to Mary Big Prairie Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #148 to Mary Ann Stevens Ferry. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #188T to Milo Ferry. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #189T to Madam Billie (Real name was Mrs Ferry from Spencer Ranchero) R&R estate passed to cousin Mary Ann Stevens Ferry, allotment #386. Hoopa Valley Reservation allotment #439 and #261H to Peqwin Billie EUR allotment #125-T to Mary Big Prairie. This is mentioned in a court case. It could be a typo on the number. Any information will be greatly appreciated. We are a Tolowa family Dick/Cheyenne
