For any genealogical research, be sure to consult the State Archives and the State Historical Society of any state in which you are working because their staff are more knowledgeable about areas/groups of the state than anyone else.  For example, the Oklahoma Historical Society has roll books from over 40 tribes of Indian Territory.  Probably no other repository in Oklahoma would have as much information in one place about most of the tribes of Indian Territory if you are not sure which tribe you are looking for.  Their staff will be more familiar with general subjects of state interest than will local library staff members which are only familiar with their specific county/area of the state.
