I probabally will sign up for the genealogy course. My husband descends from a John Eberhard Ream who came to the present site of Reamstown, Pa. two of his children became Moravian and there were many records on the Ream Family, but they were down in Winston Salem at the Southern Moravian Archives. My husband heard from the Moravian Archivist that the Ream Records she was sending him had been searched for meny years by the Reams in Pa. Many Reams had gone into the Oklahome and Vinnie Ream Hoxie had the town of Venita Oklahome named for her. Vlnnie has several statues standing in the capital and other places in Washington. I heard Vinnie was of Indian ancestry abnd wrote the President of the Ream Family Association. I receivied a whole stack of information om seeking Indian ancestry and in this material the same thing you said is mentioned. Unless my ancestors came back to the tribe it is impossible to trace them through Indian Recoirds. I am going to try to trace two of my husbands ancestors William Welch who married Eva Chronister and just by accident I am told a descendant with tribal connections wrote a relative saying William Welch and Eva Chronister were of Indian descent. Chronister was originally Keanester and Don Yoder is a Kranester descendant Don is a college professor up in the dutch Country and his kin goes back to the Oley Vallley of Berks County Pa where my husbands Leinbach line came too. Hos information goes back into Bavaria and Austria. William Welch and Eva Chronister were in North Carolina. I certainly appreciate your help. You asked why my daighter and I could not perfect our line. We did Ok on Hancock, my maiden line. On the Hancock Project Worldwide we descend from the first William who came to Jamestown and can just go to my name and then punch the mnake line and go bsack to William. On our Ward line we have merely a tintype ( a photo made on tin in Visksberg about a860 and family tradition and it has been difficult. Anita Stockburger
