NARA | ARC | Final Rolls Index Index to the Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory (Dawes). This is the index to the names of individuals entitled to enrollment on the rolls of the various tribes comprising the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory (Oklahoma). The index entries are arranged by tribe and thereunder by enrollment category (Cherokee By Blood, Cherokee Minor, Cherokee Freedmen, etc.). The entries for each enrollment category are arranged alphabetically by surname. (It should be noted that surname entries are not always in strict alphabetical order). Each index entry gives an enrollee's name and final roll number. After a person's enrollment category and final roll number have been determined, the final rolls can be searched to discover the enrollee's census card number. http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/finalrolls/ Beyond the Index Michael John Neill-Courthouse Lessons Learned Some suggestions on how to prepare for a courthouse research trip before you go. http://www.rootdig.com/adn/courthouselessons.html http://homesteadmaps.com Homestead Maps Maps from the 1800's showing actual family home locations, identified by homeowner.
