Thank you for posting the Ottawa and Chippewa Half Blood, I have been searching for my family’s half blood ancestry for quite awhile, I have three relatives listed on the census record. Would you happen to have an original copy of this census? I will gladly pay you for this record.
The transcribed records I used are found at the links shown in the resources. In other words, I don’t have the original documents. I suggest contacting the person who posted the transcribed lists. Best of luck and I’m so glad you found your ancestors!!
MIght I suggest the FamilySearch.org wiki pages as a resource? They have pathfinders for many of the tribes. I can state the Choctaw and Cherokee pages are well done. Here is the base link:
The first reply will be a search. At the top will be a link to their pathfinder.
Hi I really need to find out how to be tested for my Indian inheritance and to know how many tribes that I am an affiliated of. Please tell me how and what I can do cuz I can’t find anyone to help me. Thank you and May God Bless You All.
Here is an article that addresses exactly that. http://dna-explained.com/2012/12/18/proving-native-american-ancestry-using-dna/
My great great grandmother is pure Native American. But, I don’t see how I can get Blackfoot information.
Call the tribe.
We’re interested in helping preserve Native American Indian languages by focusing on young children. One valuable resource would be a free app or apps which children could use at home or elsewhere using a smart phone or tablet. We have developed a series of free English language literacy apps which could be adapted to help teach language and literacy in any Amerindian tribal language. Brainy Phonics, Brainy Sight Words, Brainy Words 2000, and Brainy Stories 1 are currently available for free download at the App Store, the first three at Amazon, and the first two at Google Play. Student teams at Georgia Tech University have developed several of these and, with tribal help, would be willing to create Amerindian versions which, if you choose, you could distribute exclusively to tribal members. You would not need to know anything about software development and there would be no cost. You would control the content files and could require a legal document stating that no tribal text or audio be released to the public without the tribe’s prior written consent.
If you are interested, the first step would be reviewing the apps, deciding which you would like to focus on, then determining any changes you would like. The next step would be translating or creating text in your tribal language. The next step would be creating any art files you might want to add, and recording the audio files for the app. I would be more than happy to work with tribal representatives to accomplish all of this. We would have about six months to develop the text, art, and audio files. Once you know what text you want, recording and editing the audio files shouldn’t take more than a month. For the audio recording and editing all you would need are readers, an audio tech, and a studio. We could easily create and edit audio in a radio station studio, though all we really need is a teenager with Garageband or some similar software.
Concurrently, during spring semester 2020 a Georgia Tech team or teams would focus on strategies for developing the app or apps. They would create working versions of the app or apps in fall semester 2020, and deliver their products in early December 2020.
If you are simply curious and would like to explore the idea further, please contact me. Our website hearatale.org demonstrates that we do have experience with languages other than English. The link below leads to a section of the website containing over 100 stories in foreign languages. http://hearatale.org/category.php?cat=Children/World%20Languages
If you will send me an email addres I’ll send an attachment with an article about some of our work which received the Distinguished Research Article Award for 2016, presented by the Association for Childhood Education International.
I do look forward to hearing from you.
Dr. Walter Evans
I noticed the resource:
Rowan County – Abstracts of the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions Rowan County, North Carolina 1753-1762
on this list. I’m looking for more info on my ancestor Philip Jacobs who had property in what was once Rowan. No land records with his name though. Do these Abstracts list who had Native background, etc.?
How can I access Carlisle Indian school records? I am searching my g g grandmother who was sent there.
Some are at the National Archives and there is a book. I don’t think they have any records other than a list of names, but you can try.
