A while back, I found a book “Tracing Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes: Southeastern Indians Prior to Removal” by Rachel Mills Lennon. The author has ancestors in five different tribes, including Choctaw. The book mentions several Choctaw-related record collections I was not aware of. It turns out that a couple of the collections I would really like to see to research my great-grandfather exist only on the original paper, in bound volumes at the Bureau of Indian Affairs, in Washington DC. Maybe I can get there this summer.
