How to Research Your Indian Heritage

Start your genealogical research with yourself.
Work back generation by generation on a pedigree chart
Record vital data on each person on a family group sheet
When you have found the person believed to be an Indian, determine their tribe
Then study the history of that tribe and the area they inhabited.
