      Hello everyone

      I want to wish those who celebrate it, a Happy Thanksgiving
      coming up soon! I won't be around as I go in hospital for
      surgery on Tuesday Nov. 24th and will be there for 5 days.

      Before I go, I wanted to let you know about some really
      exciting genealogy news. Footnote.com announced the
      release of their latest interactive collection of
      historical records: the Native American collection. Working
      together with the National Archives and Allen County
      Library, Footnote.com has created a unique collection that
      will help people discover new details about Native American

      The Footnote Interactive Native American Collection at
      http://tiny.cc/FMRY3 features original historical
      documents including:

      · Ratified Indian Treaties - dating back to 1722

      · Indian Census Rolls - featuring personal information
      including age, place of residence and degree of Indian

      · The Guion Miller Roll - perhaps the most important source
      of Cherokee genealogical research

      · Dawes Packets - containing original applications for
      tribal enrollments

      · And other documents relating to the Five Civilized Tribes


      I've been working on the NaturalizationRecords.com website
      at http://www.naturalizationrecords.com and have added
      some really interesting images as examples of various
      naturalization documents starting in 1795 up to 1937. The
      changes are interesting but more importantly this shows you
      what great things you can find on these documents!

      We all want to know where our ancestors came from. We want
      to know when they arrived in North America and when they
      became citizens. Naturalization and immigration records are
      the answer. Sometimes naturalization records for an
      ancestor are the only way to discover the family origins
      and that all-important ships passenger list.

      You can read the rest and click through to the images at

      Ships Passenger List" at

      I hope you are taking some time to follow the questions and
      answers on http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ I've found
      time to respond to over 30 queries which are set to publish
      on the blog automatically while I'm in hospital and
      recuperating afterwards. So you won't miss any queries or
      answers and who knows - perhaps one of the answers will be
      helpful to you in your own genealogy challenges!
