Native American Research

It goes without saying that doing Native American Research is difficult.  Over the long history of the settlement of this country many records were either never created or were lost in the shuffle of time.

Here are a few good sites that may help your research.  Make sure you do your homework and try to have names, dates, or tribal names on hand.  There are several query sites available but the more information you provide, the easier it is to find an answer to your query.

Nebraska, South Dakota and Kansas share some of the Sioux Nation along with many other various tribes and families. Try to know for sure which tribe and area you are researching in.
