Glorecords.blm.org has now, finally, been able to upload all the Choctaw & Chickasaw Indian Scrip records back up online.
Certified copies of each Indian Scrip Certificate can be requested from glorecords.blm.org.
Authenticating Indian names within each personal heritage record containing Indian names are only applicable per Indian Allotment written instructions.
Choctaw Scrip (5 Stat 513) was adjudicated under the 14th and 19th article of the Sept 27, 1830 Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in lieu of those Choctaw Indian lands ceded by the Choctaw Nation Mississippi under said 1830 Treaty.
Under the Aug 23, 1842 Choctaw Act amended the said 1830 Treaty adjudicating only one half of those reserve-promised Choctaw lands in Mississippi and the half only after removal west of the Mississippi in (4) states: Mississippi, Ala, Ark and LA.
The Choctaw scrip issued in Mississippi was under said 14th Article 1830 Treaty compliance, stating: that after signing of the treaty within six months after the ratification of the Treaty and only after agreeing to living on the lands for five years promising to become US Citizens.
Those who remove within said five years would not lose Tribal citizenship but would lose Tribal annuities.
