Whether it’s a family oral history, DNA result, or a clue in your family history research, it’s time to learn about the records to further your investigation. This one-hour introduction covers a variety of records and places to find records both online and off. It might be in the journal of missionary, a church christening record, a special, state, or federal census, school records, vital records, a bible, or your ancestor’s own words. Repositories from public libraries, historical societies, state archives, and manuscript libraries, to the U.S. National Archives hold an amazing body of records for your research. Understanding the historical context of the records and the lives they reflect are vital. This session is designed to share the basics of ancestral research for those with Native American ancestry.
