Wake County Genealogical Society Meetings for 2021 - Virtual

Next WCGS Meeting:

April 27 @ 6:30pm

Topic:  Confusing American Indian Records: 1896 Applications, Dawes Final Roll, Guion Miller Roll  

Speaker:   Debra Osborne Spindle, PhD, MLIS
Registration - TBA

These three 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” in Indian Territory, the Dawes Final Roll covers the Five Tribes in Indian Territory, and the Guion Miller includes Cherokees worldwide.  Not all the rolls are official proof of tribal citizenship but each has family material.  Locating and using each of these data sets will be addressed. 
This virtual meeting and presentation is open to all, but registration is required.
