How can we request time sensitive records for the Miwok Native American Tribe be digitized/indexed?
Below, we compiled a short list of titles of Native American Collections to pursue getting on the docket, for professional digitizing as soon as possible. Some of these may be digitized already, but the goal is for all (County, State, United States) records to be compiled and organized under a Native American heading in Family Search. We have spent years researching the Miwok tribe in California. Records are difficult to find but we have had success in looking at these records held at different sites. We would like to request they be digitized in a timely manner as many of the Miwok natives are an older generation.
