Hello again yourself Bruce,

Your posting is very interesting and the info needs to be "immortalized". If it were me, I would do a personal genealogy interview with the paternal Grandmother. Prepare by making a list of questions to ask her which will bring out as much objective detail as possible of her memories of the indian (I'm of the old school) connection. During the interview take detailed notes of her responses. Don't let the interview wander to other sujects which do not pertain to the purpose of the interview. Be sure to date your notes and include a brief biography of yourself and the relationship. If available, an audio taping would be a nice back-up to your written notes.

I read this twice, and it sounds very pushy on my part. I certainly did not mean it that way; its just that your grandmother is amoung a very special, small group that has first hand knowledge that is of great interest to all of us. And, it won't be available to future generations unless it is documented.

Think about it awhile.

I'll try to see you while I'm in Vt.
