My uncle said my great grandmother told him she was an indian and adopted as a baby. Grandmother believes it is Cherokee and they were living in Nebraska. How would you approach this problem?
You must search from the known to the unknown. FInd your great grandmother in other records, if she was adopted her records (marriage, birth of her children, death) would be intermingled - Search church, and civil records, Search for her death record and obituary. It is unlikely there were any adoption papers.
