    Where can I locate Indian Censuses for Gabrielino/Tongva Tribe?

    Jessica Garcia Newbie

      My ancestry links back to the San Gabriel Mission which the Native Americans from the Mission are called the Tongva tribe now. I'm trying to verify if my grandfather was on one of their censuses since his SSA paperwork states North America Native American. Per Tongva they cannot even look up the roll information for me. So I have searched every census from abt. 1800's when they started censuses to abt. 1940 and on those census records I don't see anything for that specific tribe. Anyone know where I could potentially get the records? I keep getting the run around on the NARA site. Please help it would be very much appreciated!
