9:00 pm
FREE WEBINAR from The Utah Genealogical Association

Many families have the oral history that an ancestor was Native American. Minnesota has a significant Native American community and a long history of interaction with non-Native populations over centuries. How does a family researcher begin to discover if it is true that an ancestor is of Native background? What federal, state, and tribal records are available?

Dr. Lovelace is a frequent speaker at national and regional genealogy conferences on health and genetics, ethnic minority genealogy, and research methodology.
