Q: How do I trace my Indian ancestry?
A: To conduct a trace, you must have the following information:
1. Names of ancestors 2. Dates of birth 3. Marriages and death 4. Place they lived 5. Their brothers/sisters 6. Tribal affiliation
The next step is to determine whether your ancestors are on an official tribal roll or census. For this they’re several sources:
The National Archives and Records Administration Natural Resources Branch Civil Archives Division 8th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, D.C. 20408
BIA, Branch of Tribal Enrollment 1849 C St. NW Washington, D.C. 20240
Contact the tribe to see if they have records of your ancestors. The key in determining Indian ancestry is identification of a specific tribal affiliation. Becoming a member of a tribe is determined by the enrollment criteria of the tribe from which Indian blood may be derived, and this varies with each tribe. The BIA does not makes this determination, the tribe does.
