Quest for my Native American Roots

$625 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 74 months

25+  years ago, My father made a request that would become my life's mission to find our Native American Roots - I am looking for Sponsors to help with funding for my trips to go to the areas to record, map & document all I can on the true genealogy of the Native American's in the IN, NY, NJ, CT, MA, RI, MI, PA, NJ areas - main research is on the Long Island & Block Island Native American Tribes - I am working closely with Archaeologist, Historians, Authors, Historical Societies, Professors/Colleges along with several Tribes &  descendants/genealogist/researchers on these lines~

I have done all the internet research I can do - I need to visit these areas and do the on hands research that needs to be done - I also want to record all the Native American spots/cemeteries that I can before it is all lost - I have many of the tribes willing to give me private tours of these areas - along with local people offering to help~

I am needing Sponsors to help with funding to travel to these areas mention above from Louisiana - I have all the equipment that I will need~

Money will be used for travel expenses, hotel fees along with any fees due to research~

I have been ask to speak at several areas on my research and have purchased all I will need to give presentations (projector and such)

All my work/photos/videos (of past trips), research books, DNA tests, newspaper articles I've been featured in along with so much more can be found on my blog: http://conidubois.com/

This research book is 25+ years in the making and I am SUPER excited & proud of this final edition~
Thru the years I have printed out these research books, to fix and correct the errors and it has led to making of this! I was seeing the story unfold as I hunted down our ancestors... page by page, person to person... I was uncovering a beautiful story... what was believed to be a myth... was real and I was a descendant of that story.... the Light House People.
This research book is dedicated to my Father.... May he rest in peace knowing... "I found our Native American Roots" and I know in my heart I will continue doing genealogy til MY dying days...
Due to this being 541 pages and VERY extensive, I am SELF publishing this: For a printed version it will be $150.00 (Sponsorship - which includes a stylus pen/personal lineage IF a descendant & I will sign the book, along with a surprise :) ) I am also putting out a digital version which will be $50.00 (best to just click this link - it is free to view online for anyone! It can't be downloaded, edited or printed thou... printing will only be done by me~) All money received will go to help me do more research and take needed trips.
Please let me know what you think of this research book... This is actually the 1st one I feel is publishing quality.
