One of the most cherished beliefs in US Genealogical research is the presence of a Native American in our past. In this class we will walk through the key first steps used to determine if there is a Native American in your ancestry. These steps include examining your family stories, tracing your lineage to that specific person; noting race/color in birth, marriage, death, and census records; the geography of a particular tribe; the history of that tribe; and comparing the facts of your family‚Äôs story.
