Native American Research

By Connie Lenzen, CG

Native American ancestry is one of the most challenging areas of genealogy research. Often, people have family traditions that some distant grandmother or grandfather was part Indian. They want to locate this ancestor and to trace the lineage.

Unfortunately, this is research a person must do themselves. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) does not do genealogical research for people, and they say, "Many people think that the BIA retrieves genealogical information from a massive national Indian registry or comprehensive computer database. This is not true.”

“When establishing descent from an Indian tribe for membership and enrollment purposes, the individual must provide genealogical documentation. The documentation must prove that the individual lineally descends from an ancestor who was a member of the federally recognized tribe from which the individual claims descent.”

Since most people do not know the name of the tribe or the Indian ancestor, the first step is to begin with the present. Find all the information that you can about your parents. Then do the same for your grandparents and your great-grandparents. Write down their vital statistics, such as birth date and place, marriage date and place, and death date and place.

If you do not conduct research every day, it is easy to forget how to do it. It will be back-to-school time to brush up on research skills.

There are some online resources to help you.

At some point in your research, you may identify the tribal affiliation of your ancestors. This is when you switch paths and begin to do your research in the Indian records. There are a number of books and microfilms in the GFO library that will help you, and they are listed below.

The Genealogical Forum of Oregon (GFO) has a number of books, microfilms, and audiotapes in the library collection.

People researching their Native American genealogy are welcome to use the facility. The visitor fee is per day, and the address and hours are at www.gfo.org. In addition, the Research Committee is available to do lookups for a small fee.
