How do I go about researching my Algonquin genealogy?

QUESTION:

My family is descended from the Algonquin’s. If I were to try to get in touch with a member of the tribe to learn more about where my family comes from how would I go about it?

ANSWER:

Hi Grace,

Tribes don’t usually offer any genealogy services, at least none that I am aware of. The tribe will not be able to “look you up” and see if you are a descendent of theirs. You will need to do this work yourself or hire a professional genealogist to do the work for you, which is not usually cheap.
