Researching your roots does not have to cost you an arm and a leg, some website are helping researchers access certain documents for free or for a small fee and I am a big fan of “Free”, or “Small Fee”. This website should be recognized as one of them, they have great documents and no subscription is required to access their documents. Just a thought my Researcher Friends.

i don’t know about that link. it appears to be a pay website to me. i cannot endorse that because it appears to me to try to sell general information and not native information. i don’t think people should advertise on someone else’s website without permission. this is the website of the choctaw tribe of oklahoma.

further, i have real questions about the prices, since they are listed in a non-standard form. this makes me wonder if the people putting up this website are even informed about genealogy or currency. maybe it does not matter to them.

i would recommend that people NOT purchase items from this website. they are not willing to give a phone# or address. if you buy something, they want your credit card# but are not willing to give any information about themselves. it might be a scam.

but the dawes applications taken 1896-1906 in indian territory can be accessed here:
partial names are ok.
match your ancestor with the family group on this card.

take the card#/family group and look for the reel here:

the card#s are in numerical order.

if you require a hard copy/paper copy of a dawes enrollment packet, – a month’s subscription is less than the price of a dawes packet elsewhere.
NARA – dawes packets are located here. fort worth, TX office
oklahoma historical society –
