Dr. William T. Cross, Ph.D., after leaving my university faculty position I have worked within Native American Communities for more than 35 years as an economic development consultant. Also, during this time I had the opportunity to assist numerous individuals and tribes with researching Native American genealogies. I am familiar with various tribal rolls from historic land allotments, treaty annuity payments, tribal census, and other data sources. During my travels throughout Indian country, I have visited over 250 Reservations, Pueblos, Rancherias, Indian Towns, and urban Indian Centers. In addition to my university research experience as a faculty member at Michigan State University and a Fellowship at the Graduate School of Education, Harvard University, I have conducted research at LDS Family History Centers, National Archives in Washington D.C., numerous tribal cultural and research centers, plus state, and local libraries. I am a member of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan.
