Finding Your Native American Heritage

Many people in the US and Canada have at least one Indian ancestral line in their family.  Lots of people grew up hearing the family legend about a family member that was Native American.  Proving that legend to be true or false can be tough.  There is very little official records about early Native American. Starting your search on Native American Genealogy can be very challenging. 

You will need to build a family tree using a multitude of resources. Research the deaths, births, and marriages of your family.  Use these records to build links from yourself back to your ancestors.
