Hello list members,
This week so far, I have submitted to all of you the following:
1880 CNWColored Census of Oklahoma
1869 CNWest Census of Oklahoma
1902 Dawes- Freedmen
1906 Dawes- Freedmen Minors
IMPORTANT NOTICE :
These records are all from original documents.
1869 CNWest Census
These Jim Hicks transcribed from photocopies of the original document.
1880 CNWColored Census
These were transcribed by Barbara Benge from photocopies of the original.
1902 Dawes Freedmen
These are OCR transcriptions scanned from a NARA index to the 1902 Dawes.
Jim Hicks has worked a lot with the Cherokee by Blood transcriptions and
says there are errors.
1906 Dawes Freedmen Minors
Same as above.
Now I suggest that any of you who are using these names in your family
geneology, MUST and SHOULD refer to 3 books, that I know can be bought
cheaply, for this FREEDMEN RESEARCH.
Those books are:

buy cheaply in a set), by Bob Blankenship
A reader, East Texas, USA, April 9, 2001
This set is a MUST have for those tracing your Cherokee root
This set contains the Official US Census Rolls of Cherokee Indians recorded
between 1817-1924. Volume one covers those Cherokee living East of the
Mississippi River, Volume 2 covers Cherokee who were living West of the
Mississippi River. These same rolls are still used today in determining

by Jo Ann Curls Page (Paperback - January 1995)
I find Jo Ann's book to be a real asset to comparing the Freedmen Roll
numbers and her book also gives the names of the parents, and the Freedmen
Minors, as well as the Rejected Freedmen.
After you have found your family member and compare to the books above, to
make sure there is no mistake in the roll numbers, you may then want to do

Thank you, Bright Star
For the record:
I am in no way affiliated with or do I know personnally the writers of the
books, I have suggested you buy. I am merely telling you as a Freedmen
researcher, the best way and cheapest way for you to verify your family
I would appreciate it if you do find any mistakes, that you contact me, so I
can make corrections to the file I have.
