Meanwhile Anola and I went to the Kansas City Indian Center to meet with the person who does genealogy work there. Her name is Nancy Blue. Our purpose in being there was to get some information about our great great grandmother, Naomi Campbell, who was Native American. While we learned a lot, we didn't get any information about Naomi or her husband, Byron, or her son David beyond what we already had. What I did learn, however, explained why that family lived in Kansas rather than Missouri. Missouri had laws that made it illegal for a native to own property, hold a job, maintain a residence, or even stay over night. No wonder the natives lived in Kansas! Anyway I came away determined to be more focused on my own genealogy work as soon as I finish with my orals in October.
Lousia had gall bladder surgery today and is at home recuperating. She had a little difficulty yesterday but seems to be doing OK now. Mary was with her all day yesterday and overnight as well.
