How do you track Native Americans who might have been given new "Christian" names?
I recently discovered eight (8) half-siblings, the oldest of which told me our 2nd great grandfather was full-blooded Native American (based on information she got from our shared grandmother, whom I never knew). She did not know which tribe. Knowing that so many Native American children were taken from their homes and placed in boarding schools back in the 1800's, I am trying to determine if this was possibly the case. Can anyone direct me to a registry for these children (if one exists)? Thank you.
