Exciting Possibilities

Posted by chowanoke on December 2, 2009 at 6:37 AM

:DHi all!

   I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the direction of the site so far! Its only a week old and I've already had several people come forward with new information. I now have four progenitor lines coming from the Chowan that we can research. The goal of this site is to create a large scale mosaic of information on the desendents of the Chowanoke, and how we have migrated over the years. This is also a place of learning on the ancient ways of the Chowanoke. Unfortunately the Chowanoke were in a state of rapid decline before they could be described in detail, but from archeological information and the culture of the surrounding Algonquian tribes we can begin to piece together fragments of information until we can make a whole quilt. Keep sending me info, and I'll post it!

This is exciting, is there more people who contact you than there are members? Because surley there are much more Chowan people than our few members on this site...how can or should we go about gathering our fellow Chowan?

Well, yes, there certainly are others out there. there are several strong genealogical lines linking people to the Chowanoke, I suspect that there are hundreds of others out there. The trick is that our generations are so very far removed fromm the old days that the tradition of having Indian blood may have died out, or maybe they don't know which tribe they were from. I do have some hope however on ancestry.com though, because I have seen the owners of many family trees with links to old members of the Chowanoke tribe. Perhaps if I contacted these people we could find new brethren.
