FREEDMEN SURNAME INDEX



To assist you in locating which tribe(s) to begin your search, I have complied this index of Freedmen Surnames. The Index list the Surname in the first column and the second through the sixth column list the Tribes (Indian Nations) were they were enrolled. Many surnames include more than one Nation, however, there are a small number that can be found in all nations.  Again this index is only a starting point, do not limit your search to just the Nation(s) listed. Due to numerous  e-mails requesting how to use the records and what records are available, I post this index with a strong recommendation that you invest in a resource book. Angela Walton-Raji has authored Black Indian Genealogy Research a wonderful tool to answer your questions and assist in your search. Click on the title for purchasing information.
