The Government and Heritage Library is pleased to offer ProQuest Indian Claims Insight and African American Heritage as trials for our patrons. These databases will be available through April 23, 2020 for GHL patrons with library cards. 

 

ProQuest Indian Claims Insight: Indian Claims Insight is a one-of-a-kind research tool that provides researchers with the opportunity to understand and analyze Native American migration and resettlement throughout U.S. history, as well as U.S. Government Indian removal policies and subsequent actions to address Native American claims against the U.S. Government. The collection includes docket materials for all Indian Claims Commission cases, as well as cases that preceded and followed the existence of the commission.

 

African American Heritage: ProQuest African American Heritage is a groundbreaking new digital resource exclusively devoted to African American family history research. It provides users a dedicated resource that not only brings together records critical to African American family research; but also connects them to a community of research experts, whose mentoring and assistance can frequently be the difference between research success and futility.
