Way Up Yonder in the Indian Nations: Oklahoma Five Tribes Research

Learn the basics for doing research for Oklahoma’s Cherokee, Muscogee Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole tribes. The introduction will demonstrate how to explore the Dawes Roll and the resulting documents including Census Cards, Packets, Applications for Allotment, and Allotment Maps. But there are plenty of other resources for researching members of these tribes. Most examples will be from Cherokee records.
