I'll never know my family history because most of the records burned up in a fire somewhere around 1920. I no longer care about it, either.

I am a mutt. I know some good stories about my family, but I'll never have a Coat of Arms or a Tartan kilt to claim as mine. I cannot trace my hertiage and I no longer feel the need to.

Would it make any difference at all in my life if I discovered tomorrow that I am descended from Scottish kings? No... it wouldn't.

So, I no longer care about that crap.

Hey Eric, if you need help tracking down any local Cata-waba info just let me know. Right now I'm having a beer about three miles from the resevation. I'm out that way at least once a week.

I used to ride the school bus with Chief Blue's twin grandsons. We used to beat the shit out of each other before going fishing. Also, ala Acidman there were toads exploded.

If you need anything just give me a holler. I work for myself and love rooting around graveyards and such.

P.S. Yes I know I spelled Catawba the way I did.
