Webinar: Sources and Methods for Researching Native American Ancestors

The Houston Public Library’s Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research along with the Clayton Library Friends are hosting my presentation on October 23, 2020 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. CDT via Zoom. I will cover the basics of a variety of Tribes and areas. It’s time to get started on your indigenous heritage research. From the website:

“Nationally renowned speaker Paula Stuart-Warren will teach the basics for using the abundant and rich sources available to research U.S. Native American family history. Many types of records will be covered, including Indian census, special rolls, manuscripts, religious records, and Indian school records. The National Archives and regional locations, historical societies, state archives, county courthouses, and other record locations are described. The importance of understanding the historical and cultural context of the records and the lives they reflect will be discussed. Migration research provides some surprises for ancestral locations. An extensive handout provides steps, websites, and publications to further your search. Reservations required, use link below to register for this Zoom Meeting. Registration is limited. “

You will receive a reminder with the meeting link the week of the presentation.
