Dear Ms. Marshall,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
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 yet left the reservation/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 hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you for your reply and suggestions. I was able to find her Dawes Roll number and her Card number, by accessing NARA’s, Final Dawes Roll. I am going to order her packet, to see if there is more information. She was my deceased husband’s great grandmother. I am doing this research, to help mine and my deceased husband’s children, my grandchildren and apparently, my new great grandson! His family, since his death are not forthcoming, with any family information or history. I was relying on my memory, for names.
As such, I was hoping to find relatives, to connect with, hince my post. I guess I should’ve added more details.
Once again thanks for your assistance and thank NARA for having the info, so I could find, what I have! Very much appreciated.
Sincerely, Katherine Marshall
