Sept. 13 presentation: “Sources and Methods for Researching American Indian Ancestors”

My next in-person presentation is Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Hudson, Wisconsin public library. The topic is “Sources and Methods for Researching American Indian Ancestors.” The presentation runs from 10:30-11:30 and I promise to hang around to answer questions. The presentation is accompanied by an extensive handout for each attendee.

I have more than 20 years of experience and knowledge in the area of Native American research for individuals, law firms, and with tribes.  My experience includes in-depth research at the U.S. National Archives in several of its locations, the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, at several state historical societies and state archives as well as in courthouses and libraries in many states. This presentation will aid your research no matter whether you already have some records showing your Native American ancestry or are simply ready to get started. The examples will whet your genealogical appetite to search for similar items for your own family. We are blessed in Wisconsin and Minnesota with many nearby record including those online.  Native American ancestry from other states? Don’t worry, you’ll learn more, too.

  1. Fantastic that you are sharing your expertise in this field! It is a fascinating topic! Just found out my husband has about 25% Native ancestry from Mexico so now am exploring possibilities of which tribe it could be. I have some theories, but no specific documents yet. A whole new world to explore! Many thanks for your work in this field of study! So important to preserve this rich history!
