Family Member Locates, Native American Heritage & DNA Tests

Native American Heritage

Many people grow up hearing family stories about Native American Indian ancestry. Tracing this genealogy is not like other family trees and requires expert knowledge of how the U.S. government viewed and classified Indians. Finding the necessary documents has been a specialty of Aspen Genealogy since 2005.

Native American Adoptees: Between 1950 - 1970 over 2 million Native American children were forcibly removed from their families and placed into non-Native foster and adoption settings. Aspen Genealogy is honored to have assisted some of these individuals in reconnecting with their cultural and tribal heritage. If you believe you are one of these Native Americans adopted during this time, contact us for specialized research.
