Many people have run into brick walls in their research and it is a common saying: "Well they were Cherokee or American Indina", 50% of the time that is correct the other 50% it is usually not.
A website is on line of names that registered with the Cherokee for admittance in 1909. NOT ALL of these were accepted but a list of names is made for you to search and see if your ancestor is there and thought at least that they qualified for admittance into the Cherokee Nation.
The Dawes Roll can be accessed online:
This is the index to the names of individuals entitled to enrollment on the rolls of the various tribes comprising the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory (Oklahoma). Each index entry gives an enrollee's name and final roll number. After a person's enrollment category and final roll number have been determined, the final rolls can be searched to discover the enrollee's census card number. A copy of the census card can be obtained by writing the National Archives--Southwest Region, P.O. Box 6216, Fort Worth, TX 76115-0216.
