I don't know how that happened, but that last comment was supposed to go with the Scotland article!

This nrws would be even better if all those that would want to avail yhemselves had not only computers, but the service to actually run them, as well as instructions on how to use a computer in the first place..Even here in Wa. there are still native people to poor and undereducated to benefit from this, and that has to change!

This is good. They should not be allowed to linger in anomie. Hope that the word gets around that this service is available. Surely the native Americans will help each other.

A small concession. Many natives do not have access to computers or computer service, sadly

Noted, very useful information....my husband's family has always said that Grandma "came from the reservation" to get married to Grandpa. The problem is that the records may have been destroyed or omitted as she "left" the tribe.

Time brings about a change,the NATIVE american children should be able to trace their ancestry. How do you know WHO you are , if YOU do not Know from what tribe you came from

Next order of business ,HELP American Blacks trace their ancestry FROM AFRICA from 1700s , Time acknowledge, AGAIN, I say=How do you know WHO you are, IF You do not know from where you came
And::::: What is your true family name. that is very long overdue.

It is about time our government do something nice for Native Americans. The founding of America has been the worst thing to ever happen to Native Americans.
