Can anyone suggest how you might prove that one of your ancestors was 1/2 Native American? It has been suggested that my GGGrandmother, Ursula (nee Laroque/LaRock) Douville was 1/2 Chippewa or Menominee Indian. I believe she lived at or around the Bay Settlement area of Green Bay, WI when her daughter, Odilia Douville married my Great Grandfather, Robert Landry, in 1881.

Would any Federal, State or Church records show a person as being 1/2 Native American? The family, I am assuming, was Roman Catholic as most French Canadian-American families were at that time.

Any help appreciated. Thanks. Jeanne
