Introduction and Purpose

In 1997 I launched the African-Native American Web site.  The page had developed out of my research and work with the records that document the Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes.  This enormous record set became the basis of my work with “Black Indian” records and eventually formed the basis of my book, Black Genealogy Research. African American Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes.

In the past 12 years, my research has expanded to include the history and documentation of blended African & Native American families in more states. As a genealogist, the focus remains on providing the evidence and properly citing the sources in order to tell the family story.  As I have become more familiar with resources for documentation of African American families that were associated with people from multiple Native American communities, I have expanded the focus of my research to include genealogical resources for families beyond Indian Territory.

The focus will remain on relying upon standard genealogical methodology that will lead to the proper documentation of one’s family history.  The page will discuss and include record sets that are essential to construct one’s family history.

Among the records to be featured will be:

●Indian Freedmen Records of Oklahoma

●Black Families of the Mississippi Choctaw

●Eastern Cherokee Records

The past several years has witnessed an increase in family history, as well as an interest in the histories of African and Native families.  There has been discussion from the Smithsonian to the airwaves, about the possibility of the documentation of such families. This page will provide reliable resources to document this unique history, and will provide opportunity to learn more about the scholars that are also chronicling this history.

If you have genealogical questions or need information on more resources, let me hear from  you.

Enjoy the history and documentation of  your family history and congratulations on the endeavor to tell you story!
