Jackie D Yaggi

Hello, My name is Jackie Yaggi. I was born in Mississippi and I remember wanting to see my great-great grandparents. My dad told me they had all died. I was just sad back then. He also told me he had never met them. They were the dark people, my grandmother said and she did not want anything to do with them. My gggrandmother was named Jennie or Lydia Bryant. She was Choctaw and she married a Sepulvado at one time. Then she married a Thomas C. Bryant, who was from Virginia. I just want to know who she was and to finish a family tree. I feel that if someone can remember her or has records of her I can at least know who she was and some of the things she faced when she was alive. Thank you very much. I hope someone can tell me.

Patricia A Citizen

Hello, My name is Patricia A Citizen. I was born and raised in Church Point Louisiana. My mother is Letter M Citizen. She passed away in 2014. Her mother was Mary Landry. Her mother’s father was from Elton and was a pure Indian. I am trying to find out more information about my mothers side of the family. My fathers side of the family is from The Saint Landry/Church Point area. His family is part of the Choctaw Indian. I recently did my Ancestry DNA and found out I am 5% Native American Indian. I am now trying to find out which Tribe we are apart of. If someone can help me please feel free to email me at [email protected]

I used to live in IL and WI. I attended many Pow Wows – even camped at Lac du Flambeau. Now I live in MS near LA. Do you know of any celebrations near me? I have asked and looked, but haven’t found anything. Either way, thank you in advance for your time.
