breakdown of the middle ground.

who do you think you are??

Long before the new NBC show, Who Do You Think You Are, debuted a couple weeks ago, I was already interested in my ancestry. Every Thanksgiving, heck every time I bought a can of sweet corn, I jokingly referred to my Native American background. Both sides of my parents have stated we have a lineage that includes the Cherokee tribe—but that’s about as much as they know. The corn thing is from the movie Pocahontas, because that’s pretty much all I know.

There has always been a lack of knowledge or desire for knowledge; and nothing has ever been provided or easily accessible to me. I’ve planned to actively trace those before me, but until I put more action then setting up a username and password on ancestry.com, I’ve committed to at least learn some simple basics about this ethnic group.
