Program for June 15, 2015: "Oklahoma Indian History to be studied at EGS"
by Carolyn Leonard
Mahlon Erickson will present a program on "Research at the Indian Archives in the Oklahoma History Center" at Edmond Historical Museum on Monday June 15.
The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will begin at the Edmond Historical Museum, 431 S. Boulevard, Edmond, OK with a social time at 6:15 pm, program begins promptly at 6:30 pm.
"I learned a lot about researching there, while compiling my "Pre-1920 Oklahoma Death Index" for all of Indian Territory and Oklahoma, Erickson said. "That project currently has more than 490,000+ entries."
Erickson is also working on two other projects: Graves Registration Officer, Department of Oklahoma, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War; and WW1 Veterans Recognition Project Coordinator for Oklahoma Genealogical Society
"I am glad to share what I learned to help other budding genealogists know where and how to search those records and tell them what they might find," Erickson said.
He retired from Stillwater Public Schools after teaching 9th grade Science for 23 years, and is currently employed as a geologist at Sundown Energy in OKC. Erickson has been researching his own family history for 40 years.
The purpose of the Edmond Genealogical Society is to develop and maintain high standards for training and assisting members pertaining to genealogical and related historical research, and to collect and preserve material and historical data.
