  1. i really enjoy looking through your work!

    I wasn’t certain if this 4 generation from the Mohawk Council on my husband’s father and his relations would be of any help.

    Thanks for all you do!

    • THANK YOU 🙂 I’ve been working for awhile on the Western Metis populations but I’m now turning my attention back to the Iroquois. I’ll be making on a Rice post but it’s a long job. Are there any other surname you’re particularly interested in? Evelyn
