If your only searching you Choctaw History for CDIB Certificate Degree of Chotaw Blood" Then we fail to learn about our rich History of the Choctaws history of our Choctaw People. We know the Trail of Death and strifes our Choctaw People went through on our way to the Indian Territories- When you have researched every corner- of the Indian Territory- Borne in mind- the Background-of your Choctaw Migration- and that Federal Census Rolls, whether “W” or “Ind” is important- once the Government- emigrated- assimilated the White communities with the “Five Civilized Tribes” and When the census taker found an Indian married and living in the same dwelling with a white person- Federal Census Laws was to enroll them all together as a one Family Group as “W” White- Not uncommon to find an enrolled Choctaw listed as “W” in the Federal Census Records- In order for Oklahoma to be enacted into Statehood in 1907- The Indian Territories had to have Federal census records Show the Indian Territory records as a whole State along with white community in order for U.S. to enact the State and Indian Lands in Severely as a whole disbursed and assimilated “White” Community-

Although a CDIB- Card shows you Choctaw Blood lineage- Although It shows Federal/National Records of your Choctaw Blood Lineage, however it does not provide you and your direct Choctaw descendants a Personal historical background of how our proud Choctaw lived then and to-day and how they migrated and survived from one part of the country to another. A CDIB- Card- is important however, there’s a great many Choctaw Historical Records- and personal elders History yet to be explored-

In researhing “Final Rolls” for your Choctaw Heritage specifically for CDIB-Card- Was your Choctaw family living in the Indian Country Territories- Between the years Feb 8,1887 and May 31,1907 Closing of the Dawes Final Rolls- Can you find your Choctaw family listed on Federal/National Census Rolls?

Although it is true that Choctaw Nation does not accept and CDIB Application with an MCR- attached to a roll number- Remember- Whether an MCR- 14th Article Claimants Dawes Commission was Rejected or Enrolled in the Indian Territories or enrolled in Mississippi-and never’ Removed-and enrolled in the Indian Territories. An MCR-14th Article Claimant comes with verification by Blood as a Choctaw- Whether Oklahoma or Mississippi Choctaw- whether they were removed under 3rd Article or 14th article 1830 Treaty- CHOCTAW IS CHOCTAW- REMOVED OR NEVER REMOVED FROM MISSISSIPPI~
