This workshop will illustrate at how blended families (African & Native American) can be documented, and the family historian can take the family history beyond mere oral history. Suggestions on how to avoid the pitfalls in Native American research and suggestions will be made for those who have ties to tribes that no longer exist.

The purpose of this class is to provide a short introduction to identifying and documenting your Native American ancestor. First, identify the ancestor that may have Indian blood.
