(18-1) Native American Research Tip

If you have been unsuccessful in locating your Native American ancestors in the 1900 and 1910 Heritage Quest Online census indexes, there is a reason. As a people, they have been mis-indexed. Bring them out of hiding by typing "Indian" in the surname field of the 1910 federal census. You will find there are 111,898 heads of families listed under "Indian." Enter "Oklahoma" and find there were 19,916. Narrow the search to "Comanche County" and there were 399 enumerated. After selecting a name, view the original census page that lists family members.
