I am in awe of the photos that I found last night as I was researching NZ.Check them out on facebook.The skies are a gorgeous blue and captured by the beauty of the Isles.This beauty in the 1800 probably was unspoiled forestland that our ancestors thrived on.What an adventure .What more could you ask for?Nature and all it's beauty .But behind all of this is the fight of survival.Follow my ancestors and well find how even the strong and courageous sometimes make choices that affect their people hundreds of years later.

I was always told we were Cherokee .Moma I think looked it.High cheek bones and black hair.Dark Skin.I have seen Ray on the rolls but never a Burrell?Shawnee I have reason to believe a Burrell could possible be.Research shows they were in Tennessee after or shortly after trail of tears .I'm still reading book.Let you know what I find out.I won't say that I visited Cherokee a lot when my children were coming up such amazing spirit.Even if these claims were wrong I think I learned a lot by the myth.
