Its better than the Mormon Churches Records, and has all tribes from back then. These people kept records on American Indians back to the Mayflower........

Social Security Administration
Baltimore, MD   21235-0001
If you DON'T have a Social Security number, you can call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213. If you are a child of a person that you are searching for, or a blood relative, tell them
that according to the Freedom of Information Act you are entitled
to this information and they should give it to you.  This phone number is also very helpful for you if you have a social security number and have found a listing in the SSDI but it doesn't list a city or state where the death occurred.  They can sometimes tell you where the person died and then you will be able to get a copy of the obituary.
