A Funny Thing Happens When You Revisit Something...You Just Might Have A Different Take On Things.

Okay, I have to thank my fellow genealogy friend and colleague, Yvette Porter Moore, with inspiring me to dig deeper into my Tuscaroran Roots. By the way, she has an excellent blog called Digging Roots: My Family History, here's the link to it.  http://sugarhillharlemny.blogspot.com/#axzz1e6sZ0S8z If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. You're missing out. My last post called "Things That Make You Go Hmmm....My Native American Roots And Discoveries" discussed some of the things I found out while researching my 2nd great grandmother Rosa Mitchell Jones. Here's the link to that post if you missed it. http://howdidigetheremygenealogyjourney.blogspot.com/2011/11/things-that-make-you-go-hmmmmmy-native.html

Well, anyway Yvette had commented that I should get in contact with the Coastal Carolina Indian Center for tips on how to further my research on this line. It's funny when you are on this journey of discovering your ancestors, I have found at least for myself...not sure how it is for everyone else out there, but you have to constantly go back and revisit the information you have researched. The longer you research your ancestors the more you learn and the more you learn how to research better. So wherever you left off a few months ago or a year ago with a certain family group, it is so important to go back and revisit this information. With new eyes and new tools, you may be amazed that you might be able to break through what was once a brick wall.

So have I broken through any brick walls? No not yet, but I have started to review my Mitchell group with new eyes and I think I may be on my way with something here.  I have to also, follow up with the Coastal Carolina Indian Center for tips on which way to go with my research, so I will keep you posted.
