  • help understanding BIA card

    My sister and I have been working on expanding on our families NA ancestry. We've always been told that there was more than we could document. My G-father's great grandmother was always said to be of the blood but there was no documentation. Anyways, my sister found in her baby book a blue card (about postcard size) labled to this grandmother (Samantha Stevens) and bearing a BIA seal or address (unsure because I've not yet seen the card). On the back is what my sister says appears to be some kind of docket number. The last name of Stevens is from her second husband. Her maiden name is maple and her first husband (my lineage) was a Jeffers. I've never seen any kind of card that would fit that discription. So if anyone could tell me what this card would be, and if there is a way to trace this "dockett number" I would greatly appreciate it. This may help us to find another peice of our personal family heritage.

    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.
