About Debbie Gambrell # RL048381C1, mtDNA H2a1

While I'm very interested in all of my ancestry, I have a special interest in my Native American ancestry because they're the ones who have been lost to so many generations, the ones whose names are often not remembered, whose stories haven't been passed down. I'm humbled to be able to help restore them to our family history.
