Hello ma'am/sir

I'm interested in learning more about my ancestry. I'm not sure what I need to do to find them. I need to trace my ancestors to see if I have a bloodline from indigenous ancestors so that I can obtain the NCIP Certification of Confirmation required to request a height waiver. Thank you so much.
