Native American Ancestors, fact or fiction

A July 28 blog posted at Sksgenealogy.blogspot.com, points out how many American families claim Native American ancestry, which sometimes seems impossible and not logical. She urges readers to consider how Native American “adoption,” of a child could have affected families and friends.

While adopted, “the child learned Native American language and customs, which could be integrated into the family history later,” she writes. “Even if it wasn’t a direct ancestor who had this experience, it may have been a neighbor or friend, and still have had an impact on the family.”

She then lists examples of colonists who were kidnapped and then either returned to their families or chose not to, including Mary Jemison, Esther Williams, and the Shell/Schell twins.
