Question
Tiffany ,
Watching the reruns of dr. Quinn, medicine woman
I've gotten stuck, not wanting to miss anything.
And also more interested in Larry Sellers.
Having indian ancestry in my family, how do I
Go about connecting with him to learn more about the history
Of his people and mine?  Did he marry, any kids, any siblings?
Can you be of any help to me?
Thanks.

Answer
Hello Jackie,

It's easy to get stuck watching the episodes, and easy to get addicted. Good thing you can do so in a marathon style instead of having to wait for 1 episode each week as it was when the show first aired on TV nearly 20 years ago.

Regarding your question about Larry, I unfortunately don't have any contact anymore with him. He left the TV and movie industry to focus his attention on his tribal heritage, training and speaking to groups within the Indian reservations as well as engaging in performances with his tribes. Contact with him has been difficult at best, and it's been a long time since that happened. Yes, Larry is married and does have children. I'm not sure about his siblings.

My best advice to you would be to research your Indian ancestry, then do in-depth searches on your specific tribes, where they live, where they originated, customs, history, etc. If you have names, you might be able to trace the names through databases such as ancestry.com. You won't need to contact Larry in order to research your own family history.

Hope this helps!

Expertise

I don`t know where to begin to describe my level of expertise and knowledge regarding the wonderful show: Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. I guess I will start from the beginning. I began watching the show with the first episode of the second season. With the help of friends, I discovered there was a first season, and they loaned me their tapes which has the episodes on them. I was hooked on the show from the beginning, and I never missed an episode! I now have every episode on tape (non-syndicated and uncut), and I have seen all of them at least three times. I have also been out to the set, where they film, and have met all of the cast and most of the crew who work on the show. I now have friendly relationships with several of those I met. There is no question I cannot answer, and if I do not know the answer right away, I can find it within a couple of days. Feel free to contact me and ask whatever question you would like, and I will do my best to get an answer back to you, promptly.
