This project aims to document the mysterious Lambert/Lambeth line in NC. Please feel free to join and add your profiles if you have relatives that fit the bill. Also, please mark suspected Cherokees/ Melungeons so we can look into them.

Some major goals: 1) Try to figure out the path of the Lamberts/Lambeths as they moved through NC to TN. 2) Try to figure out some likely folks who many have been the Emigres from England to America. 3) Try to figure out if we have Cherokee or Melungeon relatives in the tree, and if ultimately some of the lines in NC were of these groups and adopted the Lambert name.

Problems, which we all know about: 1) NO ONE in this family has a document that relates to them. Most of the Lamberts were/are illiterate and rarely appear in official records due to poverty. 2) Many members of this family are secretive about their origins for various reasons.
