"How-to" Article Series

In the early spring of 2000 I began a series of articles for Suite101.com on the topic of Native American Genealogy. It didn't take long to find out that the length restrictions limited the depth of the articles. As a result, I'm writing a more detailed book on the topic. In the meantime, I've posted my Suite101 articles here in hopes you will find some information that will help in your genealogical research. You'll find additional article links and information in the Native American Genealogy section of my website. Good luck on your search!

Tracing Indian names can be a daunting task. To understand just how difficult it is, I am providing a link here to comments written in 1897 by Frank Terry who was serving as superintendent of boarding schools at the Crow Agency in Montana. I caution you that Terry's negative attitude regarding original Indian names may offend many people. Despite the negativity, reading this will give you a better picture of the problems you will face when tracing Indian ancestors and family members. You really need to read Naming the Indians
