    Trying to find information on my grandmother

    Michael Durham Wayfarer

      Good afternoon, I'm trying to find information on my grandmother who was born on a Native American Reservation in 1895. Her parents were Matilda You who married John Reid. That is the only information that my mother provided to me. Thank you.

          Hi Michael,

          Welcome to History Hub

          Could you provide your mother's name and date of birth, and any other family member, such as your mother's brothers or sisters and your fathers first name and any dates that you may have and residences of the family

          Thank you

            Dear Mr. Durham,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Applications for Enrollment in the Five Civilized Tribes, 1898 - 1914 (also known as the Dawes Rolls) in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that may include your grandmother and/or her parents. Most of these records have been digitized and are available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Fort Worth (RM-FW) at ftworth.archives@nara.gov.

             

            Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RM-FW. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

             

            We suggest that you review the NARA web page for Dawes Rolls as an overview of how to research that resource. In addition, the NARA Native American Heritage webpage, NARA Resources for Genealogists webpage, and the FamilySearch Research wiki for Indigenous Peoples of the United States Genealogy may be useful.

             

            When embarking on Native American genealogy, please note that the records in the custody of NARA often only detail those living on the reservations or being administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. If an ancestor was Native American and left the reservation or did not have interaction with the United States Government as such, they will not be recorded in NARA’s records and tracing their genealogy may be difficult.

             

            We also suggest that you contact the State Archives or Health Department of State to request a search for the birth, marriage or death certificates that may document your mother’s and grandmother’s Native American ancestry. You may wish to note any name variants or broaden your search for the surrounding years. In addition, the FamilySearch Research wiki for How to Find United States Vital Records may be helpful. 

             

            We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!

                There is a Milner family tree on Ancestry.com but I don't have a subscription at this time. You can get a one time free trial if you have not had one before

                 

                 

                That's all I found so far.
