Indian Rolls

For the Native American Researcher the "Rolls" are usually their first research.  This in most cases is not the best starting point for your research.  The Rolls are of great value, but first you need to understand the roll you are searching, when and where it was taken and of what value it will be to your research.

These mailing lists are for the use of expanding our knowledge of these rolls.  Finding that place in history when it was decided there was a need for the roll, exactly why it was taken, information the government was collecting, and the part it would play in the Tribes life.
