"Beery sounds like it could be a spelling variation of Berry, a somewhat popular Native American/Cherokee surname"
If she had been advised to research the actual name, it took me all of about two minutes to find that her ancestor had been in this country since the 1700's and came from Switzerland.
I gave her a link to a book from the New York Public LIbrary that she can look at page by page online that documents her family up to the early 1900's. Beery wasn't American Indian.
Of course actual information is only as good as the researcher that uses it.
Just curious, why do some people when they hear any last name that sounds like nature, ex. grass, berry, fox, bean, etc. jump to the conclustion it must be american indian?
