7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
The Library Center, 4653 S. Campbell Ave., Springfield, MO and Zoom
These three distinct rolls, taken 1896-1909, are unique and provide significant genealogical information, but can be confusing for researchers of American Indian records.  The 1896 Applications were a "false start" for tribal enrollment in Indian Territory, (in what is now eastern Oklahoma),the Dawes Final Roll cover the Five Tribes in Indian Territory, and the Guion Miller includes applications from Cherokees (and Cherokee hopefuls) worldwide.  Not all the rolls are offical proof of tribal citizen, but each is rich with family information.  Debra Osborne Spindle,PhD, retired librarian from the Research Division of the Oklahoma Historical Society will present via Zoom.
