    1. Re: [NA-CHIPPEWA] Searching ..
    2. I haven't been able to find anything yet to indicate Native American bloodlines, but I figure that given the status of being Indian back then, I don't think my great grandmother would have put she was 1/2 Chippewa in her Bible unless it were true.... just cannot figure out how to prove it. Any suggestions??? I can use all the help I can get!!! :-) In a message dated 6/3/2008 8:41:17 P.M.

The Native American Line is through his mother, on the 1860 Census she is listed as Indian, on everyone after that she and most of her children are listed as white. So just because your ancestor is "white" on the census, it may not be so. Times were tough for Indians and if saying they were white made it easier, who could blame them? Good Luck with your searching! **************Get trade secrets for amazing burgers. Watch "Cooking with Tyler Florence" on AOL Food.
