Been doing the family tree thing. Traced my wife's French-English-Scottish pedigree back to the 1200's. Ran into trouble with me because both sides are Oregon Native Americans. Resources go back to when Oregon achieved statehood and that's about it. Indian census is worthless. What am I missing?

Have you tried this resource ??

https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/...ians_of_Oregon

Bear in mind that Native Americans did not keep many, if any, written records before the arrival of Europeans.

Try searching your family back through the U.S. census. www.familysearch.org

Start with what you know & go back slowly generation by generation.

This book
Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources

edited by Alice Eichholz

can be read on Google Books. The section on Oregon begins on page 553.

Page 559 notes that "many Native American records are microfilmed and are on file at the National Archives Pacific Alaska Region (Seattle); some are on file at the FHL."

NARA (National Archives) Seattle site: The National Archives at Seattle

FHL: www.familysearch.org

Unfortunately, some pages are not shown in the Google Books preview of the Red Book. Take a look at the pages on Oregon that are shown, and try getting the book from your library to see the rest. If they don't have it than ask for it on inter-library loan.

I can look in the books of Munnick translations of old Catholic records for Oregon Territory from 1830's to 1850's. I have quite a few research books of the fur trade era for this area.
