Many families have a story of an ancestor who was Native American. Proving this fact has always been elusive, but for a genealogist, the legend piques our curiosity, the elusiveness our interest. Researching a Native American (NA) ancestor, however, can be confusing and time consuming, sending the researcher down a rabbit hole of incomplete record sources - made more difficult, by the specificity of the documents for each tribe - or at least, that's how researching your NA ancestor is spun to new genealogists. In truth, you discover your NA ancestor, at first, just like you research any other ancestor, one generation at a time.

The evening's talk revolves around personal research into the ancestors of Partridge's grandmother Della Grenier (Greenia) and his main research tenet: “Nothing is what you think it is, until you can prove it is!” He managed to discover various lines of ancestry for her - research that he had not previously pursued due to the lack of accessible records. His great-great-grandmother's family was a most colorful family and have a remarkable story to tell. The facts and records surrounding them will introduce the audience to Native Americans, coureur des bois, gypsies, "River Rats," Eugenics, racism, and poverty as it affected a whole community of “outsiders” in upstate Vermont. This talk however is more than just a story, it’s a concrete example of the FAN principle of genealogical research (family, associates, and neighbors).
 
Public welcome.
