In my family, the collecting of family history and geneology began with me, sparked by my Grandma Mae's storytelling.  Although she was only one-quarter Cherokee, Mae looked like an Indian princess with jet black hair and a serenity that would serve her well through all her trials. 

Grandma remembered everything except her own mother who died right after the birth of her first born, who lay on a layer of cotton in a primative incubator, a shoebox, by the wood stove to keep her warm.
