"Gives young people the tools to discover their Native American roots, while giving their teachers an easy way to enhance the curriculum-whether it be social studies, history, or geography." -- Children's Bookwatch

A Student's Guide To Native American Genealogy gives young people the tools to discover their Native American roots, while giving their teachers an easy way to enhance the curriculum -- whether it be social studies, history, or geography.

A Student's Guide To Native American Genealogy lists annotated bibliographic references for print, electronic, and media sources, as well as many helpful organizations. Barrie Kavasch provides historical and cultural Native American background and there are full color and b/w illustrative photographs throughout. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is not going to do the work of finding your Native American ancestors. That takes time and the ability to withstand frustration of brick walls. This book gives easy to follow guidance to information for the novice genealogist. Great resources in list format of contacts to find information.
