It’s Genealogy Tip Tuesday and I am sharing step-by-step instructions on how to find your ancestor in the 1896 and 1898 Native American Enrollment Applications to the Five Civilized Tribes.
Join me over on the YouTube channel today for Genealogy Tip Tuesday!
I think many of us thought we could prove our Native American ancestry by simply taking a DNA test. Well, it doesn’t quite work that way. Instead, we need to find that paper trail. In other words, proof with documentation. So, where does a person begin?
This video will walk you through the history of the Dawes Commission, why people were applying to the Five Civilized Tribes, how to find the records, and what amazing information you might glean from them!
