Dr. William T. Cross, Ph.D., (Founder of American Indian Genealogy Research, L.L.C.) after leaving my university positions at Michigan State University and a Fellowship at the Graduate School of Education, Harvard University, I worked within Native American Communities for more than 45 years as an economic development consultant. Also, during this time I had the opportunity to assist numerous individuals and tribes with researching Native American genealogies. I am familiar with various tribal rolls from historic land allotments, treaty annuity payments, tribal census, and other data sources. During my travels throughout Indian country, I have visited over 250, Reservations, Pueblos, Rancherias, Indian Towns, and Urban Indian Centers. In addition, my research experience also includes visits to LDS Family History Centers, National Archives in Washington D.C., numerous tribal cultural and research centers, plus state, and local libraries.
