Trying to research for my daughter the Blackfoot tribe

Hi

My name is Jennifer and I am looking to

find out more information for my daughter.

She connected with her biological father

last year and as they got to know each

other better he had told her that she had

some native american in her. He thought

they had came from the Blackfoot tribe. I

am wondering if you might be able to help

me or point me in a direction so I can find

out how to verify if she does or does not

have Native American in her. She is very

interested in finding out more about this

whole other side of her family.

I do know a few names and have did some

research on Ancestry.com but it does not

list if they were Native American or not.

Her father and I were very young when we

got pregnant. He was 14 and I was 15. With

being this young it was to much for him to

handle and as most young fathers he

“bailed”. He found her last year on

Facebook and that is how they started

getting to know each other. She is very

intested in knowing more about that side of

her familly but alot of them are deceased.

I found many records on ancestry.com but am

not sure if they are the right people or

not. I have never did any type of reasearch

like this before so I don’t really know

where to start.

I had came across your website along with a

few others and thought I would go ahead and

email you to see if you might be able to

help us. I have visited the bia.gov site

but I can’t find any contact information

for the Blackfoot tribe. I know that her

grandfather lives in Hooker OK and was born

and raised in Blackwell OK. I do know some

names that her grandmother gave me that she

could remember. They were not married very

long. This has became very important to my

daughter and she wants to find out if there

is a way to possibly connect with others

that had ancestors that belonged to this

tribe so she might be able to learn more

about the culture. But there are so many

sites out there and I want to make sure I

getting the right information. So any

information you can provide me with would

be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
