All I have is a DNA test proving his lineage.  It would be very hard to prove through documentation, since that side of the family is something of a mystery.  I will try the link you gave me.  Thanks so much!  I appreciate it, since my search has been long and frustrating.  Anyone else who knows anything about this, please let me know what you know.  Thanks!

If you have any Native American ancestors, you may be able to get government benefits, such as money, scholarships, etc...

I am just learning about this, as I recently found out my son may qualify.

Right now, cooking and recipes are going very well. Also things that can help people, like how to make a garden, how to make money on the internet, and adsense articles seem to be doing quite well also, if you can explain in common terms about using it.

There are many things that are selling right now. I am trying out a few of the manuscripts that are updated novels to see how they come out.

Ebooks are becoming the going thing on the internet. So, it might be a good market to break into right now.

Articles also can generate you a very  nice income, as well as blogging.

I use lulu.com to sell some of my ebooks. I also have hardcover on there, but i don't recommend selling hardcover on lulu, since it can cost you a bundle in the long run.

Wordclay is another good place to place your books. They of course will come out as hard cover, which is fine for WordClay, and it does not cost you.

I have another one or two that i can post on here, but i have to look to see what the names of those are. One of those are: http://shirleysebooks.webs.com/

I found a new one the other day, and a very nice one also. You may want to check out Webstore, Wigix, and also Ebay. I recently sold 10 this past week on ebay.

No one has to edit or approve your ebooks. They are your product, and your creativity.

As far as pricing goes, you set your own price, and what you want to make out of them. Personally, i think if you set them at a lower price, you make more cash in the long run. So i do sell mine for a lower price.

There are places that you can sell your ebooks besides auction, like lulu.com, and as tempting as it is to also sell in hardcover on lulu, it is not adviseable, since you pay for it in the long haul.

Before I start, let me say I know some people will boo me.  Definately.  But, this is something I considered at one time.

Each person obviously has their own moral code, and would have to do some serious soul searching before doing this.  I'm curious to see what Starshine has to say.  If she didn't like pet breeding...

Becoming a surrogate mom.  There is a woman I know who did it...to the tune of $25000.  That was a few years ago, and she did it 2 or 3 times.  The people she served were from France.  She told me that depending on what state you live in, laws concerning this are different.  (Illinois has pretty lax laws on this, so women from there are in demand).  The second time she did it, she ended up carrying twins, so it was going to pay more.  They paid for all her prego expenses, and she worked the whole time, so it was like double income.  They chose her because she was already a mom and showed she could carry out healthy pregnancies.  Some places may pay more for these services.  She felt really good about helping these people who were so desperate to have a baby of their own but needed someone to carry it for them. 

I couldn't do it, but wouldn't fault someone who could.  I understand wanting a child of "your own" but if I were in that position, I would adopt!  There are unwanted babies just lying around everywhere! 

The idea is to give ideas of ways to make money, so here ya go.  It's an idea.

Hey, Laura, did you reach 100 yet?  I could count, but my coffee IV is running low

Did anyone mention car detailing yet?  Oh, what I wouldn't give for someone to give the inside of my momtaxi some serious TLC right now!  As a baby shower gift when my 4th sweetie was born, someone bought me a car detail.  It was one of the best gifts I ever got!  My sister just had a baby and had hers done before she went to the hospital.  Even if it isn't your first, nobody wants to bring home a precious, new little person home for the first time in a nasty vehicle.  Marketing your services as a car detailer to pregnant women may have some untapped potential!  That gives me another idea....if you have the time, and especially if you have been through it before, to hire yourself out as a pregnant woman's helper, to get things ready for the new baby...kind of like a wedding planner, only the event is birth instead of wedding.  To do it right, having a baby takes alot of planning and can be overwhelming for someone who doesn't have the help she needs, especially at the end.

Ebooks or pdf (portable document format) is pretty simple to make. You choose a subject that you like writing about. It's your work, so you can resell it as many times as you like.

Making an ebook, is not like making a hardcover. People want the information, and they want something that they can read while they are at the park, the doctors office, or simply waiting in line, or what have you.

They like all sorts of stuff, like cookbooks, niche items, sales, hobbies, you name it, and people are buying them. I do a lot of sales on ebay, and i also have other auctions that i have products...and ebooks are a product, but a virtual product.
