Creeks, and Seminoles CD Contents 1. The Dawes Commission "Final Rolls" of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory (Index, 634 pgs. and Main Volume, 633 pgs.) - (Dawes Commission Description) Applications for enrollment were received from approximately 250,000 individuals, but the Final Rolls approved by the Commission contained the names of 101,000, of whom approximately one fourth were full blood. The Commission enrolled individuals as "citizens" of a tribe under the following categories: Citizens by Blood, Citizens by Marriage, New Born Citizens by Blood, Minor Citizens by Blood, Freedmen (former black slaves admitted to tribal citizenship), New Born Freedmen, and Minor Freedmen. Most rolls give name, age, sex, degree of Indian blood, and the number of the census card, generally known as the "enrollment card," on which each citizen was enrolled. (Enrollment cards, as distinct from the Final Rolls themselves, are arranged by tribe, thereunder by category, and thereunder by the census card number shown as part of the individual's entry on the Final Rolls, and they usually contain parents' names and places of residence, the names of related enrollees husband, wife, children and references to earlier tribal rolls.) From the original Final Rolls, which are now housed in National Archives II at College Park, Maryland, the Commission in 1907 published The Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory along with the Index to the Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory. While the goal was far less noble the effort would eventually lead to the creation of one of the most important record sources in all of Native American genealogy. Historically becoming one of the finest resources for the genealogy of the Five Civilized Tribes ever produced. The Index file is divided by tribe and broken down under the various categories noted above (Citizens by Blood, Citizens by Marriage, New Born Citizens by Blood, Minor Citizens by Blood, Freedmen (former black slaves admitted to tribal citizenship), New Born Freedmen, and Minor Freedmen.), provides the Indian's name and the roll number; while the roll number is the key to the Final Rolls volume, which lists enrollees by tribe and category and thereunder by name, age, sex, degree of blood, and the number of the census card. 2.

A VERY RARE copy. Unfortunately the scann of this fragile text is not perfect - a few blurred pages and scanner blank apaces at the top of each scanned page (does not effect page, just its asthetic appeal); Thomas Law Book Company, St. Louis, 1919 Lawrence Mills About Our CDs Unlike many of our competitors most of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on a specific region or subject area. Many contain 5, 10, even 20 separate publications - each individually worth many times the cost of the CD. Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the family historian with thousands of pages of research information - all complete copies of the originals. The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher. Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire, for historical societies, libraries and individuals. When they are acquired they are often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for research. Our CDs contain exact electronic copies of each text as described. They are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars. The average cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable to as many home researchers as possible.
