[Thread] Like many of you, I fumbled my way into #GeneticGenealogy which uses DNA testing in combination with traditional genealogical and historical records to unlock hidden connections & answer questions. It's what helped answer this question: who was my 2nd great grandfather?
My great grandmother on my paternal side was Dora Cloud (1890-1975) and she was an Estelvste - an African Native American - of the Creek tribe. Here she is visiting her mother's grave with my wee grandfather is tow (look at her knees).
Dora was a mixture of two sparsely documented groups from an area - the Indian Territories - that didn't keep the best records. Raised by a single mother who passed way too early, the only record of her father was on the Dawes Final Rolls: John Whistler.
