|Researching California Mission Indians Using a Case Study
by Jean Wilcox Hibben, PhD.
Using genealogy methodology (with on-line and brick and mortar repositories) the mystery of a Mission Indian is solved through use of some unique sources. This lecture moves backwards from a death certificate to uncover someone who kept his tribal connections and name private. Mission Indian research is unique; information given here may be a gift to someone with that background.
