A Guide to Tracing American Indian & Alaska Native Ancestry

[pdf-embedder url=”https://accessgenealogy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/idc-002619.pdf”]

When establishing descent from an American Indian/American Native tribe for membership and enrollment purposes an individual must provide genealogical documentation that supports his or her claim of such ancestry from a specific tribe or tribal community. Such documentation must prove that the individual is a lineal descendant of an individual whose name can be found on the tribal membership roll of the federally recognized tribe from which the individual is claiming descent and is seeking to enroll.

    I was a ward of the State of Florida from infancy to 14. I have been told m6 father was full blooded Cherokee. I have people tell me constantly that they can see I have alot of Indian in me. Please provide assistance in how I go about finding out my ancestry.

    1. Purchase a DNA kit through any of the top company’s who sell the kit. You’ll know the percentage of your heritage and if a relative has also performed the DNA. By doing that, you’ll be able to connect to them online. We used Ancestry.com for the purchase of 6 kits for various family members on both sides. The outcome was interesting to say the least! Have fun on your adventure!

  2. Hello,
    My name is Virginia Berdin my sister bought me the kit to do my DNA and it came out that I am 38% Native American I don’t know where to start looking since I was in Foster Care all my life, Is there anyway someone can give me some kind of direction as to where I would start to look at what Native American Tribe I belong to . Any help would be appreciated.
    Warm Regards,
    Virginia Berdin
