Do you have Native American ancestors in your family and want to trace their history? The Dawes Rolls is where you should start. Enrollment of the Dawes Roll for the Five Civilized Tribes was conducted between 1898-1906 for individuals who were living in Indian Territory and could prove that they were enrolled on earlier tribal rolls. Kathy Huber, genealogy librarian at the Tulsa City-County Library, will give a step-by-step explanation of the Dawes Rolls. Discover the real reason the roll was created, how the enrollment was conducted, and how to determine if your ancestor was enrolled.
