Please read the following for a better understanding of these pages.

This is the Index of Cherokees, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Creek found on microfilm M1650 obtained from the National Archives in Fort Worth, Texas.  If your ancestor was on the 1896 Cherokee Census they probably will NOT be on this index.  This is NOT the 1896 CENSUS.  It is an index of people who were NOT recognized by the Cherokee Tribe and subsequently made application to be considered for citizenship.

Applications from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Muskogee Area Office, Relating to the Enrollment of the Five Civilized Tribes under the Act of 1896

On the 54 rolls of this microfilm publication, M1650, are reproduced applications for enrollment of the Five Civilized Tribes under the act of June 10, 1896.  These applications, housed in the National Archives-southwest Region, Fort Worth, Texas, were maintained by the Muskogee Area Office and are part of the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Record Group 75.

Database is currently under maintenance. I should have it back online shortly. Thanks for your patience!

We wish to acknowledge Jan Gilles, providing these census records so we can present them to our readers.  Work of individuals like her are what make our pages grow!!  Her original work was a collection of images, these have now been typed and are now in a database.
Thanks, Jan
