These volumes are paperback, and indexed. They are available from Heritage Books, Inc., 1540-E Pointer Ridge Place, Suite 400, Bowie, MD 20716. (301-390-7709) Above prices and order number are based on Catalog Issue #143, Oct. 1995. prs In the early 1900's 46,000 Americans attempted to prove their descent from the Eastern Cherokee Indian tribe in order to participate in a $1 million fund appropriated by the U.S. Congress for descendants of this tribe. The report to Congress, reproduced in this and subsequent volumes, summarized the findings in the form of pages of testimony given by applicants and witnesses. Microfilms of Guion Miller's "Report" are available at National Archives in Washington, D.C. and the Federal Records Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The compiler has transcribed each of the 12 rolls of film involved, Record Group M685, and has abstracted the data for entries as follows: "applicant's name, residence, decision and reason; miscellaneous testimony and exception cases where applicable, roll information for those admitted." Mr. Miller stated in his report of May 28, 1909 that 45,847 separate applications had been filed, representing a total of about 90,000 individual claims, most claimants residing west of the Mississippi River. This composes quite a large amount of material that the compiler has undertaken to transcribe.
