A Utah-based genealogy website is partnering with the Oklahoma Historical Society to add more than 3.2 million American Indian records to an online database to make it easier for people to research whether they have Indian blood.

The new data is available to customers beginning Monday at Ancestry.com.

With the addition, the website will have more than 10 million American Indian records, making it the largest collection of its kind.

The website will contain records of more than 570 tribes, including those from which most Americans with Indian blood descend. Census counts, treaties, land allotments, marriage certificates and citizenship documents are all included in the new data.

Ancestry.com contains billions of records and has so far created more than 60 million family trees containing more than 6 billion profiles.
