Where Can You Access the Choctaw Indian Territory Rolls?

A digital copy of The Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory is available from the United States National Archives and Records Administration. This historical record is also known as the Dawes Rolls, and it lists the name, gender, age, tribe, blood degree, enrollment number, census card number and page of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, Cherokee and Seminole tribes from 1898 to 1906.

The Research Center of the Oklahoma Historical Society hosts a free searchable record of the Dawes Rolls on its website. Users can search for Choctaw Indians by name, roll number and card number. The organization also provides available copies of Dawes census cards and enrollment packets upon request for a fee. This information is useful for finding out more details about members of the Choctaw tribe, such as important dates related to a person's birth, death, marriage and family.
