ethel webb is a rather common name, if this was her maiden name.

anyone who was alive 1/1/1937 has a social security application on file and you can ask for a copy of it. people had to submit a birth certificate to show proof of age but since many on the frontier didn’t have a birth certificate, they filed delayed birth certificates. however, if you want a copy of that, you will have to ask for the delayed birth certificate.

genealogists use names, dates, locations, children and spouses to match records. if you have a common surname, you need to give more information rather thann less. if you post about women, it is helpful to include the maiden name and the married name and designate which one is the maiden name.

first of all, heritage and tribal enrollment are two different things. many times natives didn’t apply for enrollment because 1) they didn’t qualify, 2) they were philosophically opposed to enrollment, 3) they didn’t have documentation, or 4) they were mississippi choctaw and their ancestor had accepted land or benefits in lieu of tribal enrollment.

the dawes roll was taken 1896-1906, so you should trace your ancestors down to that time period. mostly, they had to be living in oklahoma by that time and agree to live there permanently.

if the name is common, you may find too many possible records.

the tribe has an excellent information to help you. it is found under genealogy advocacy.

i am just a volunteer that wants to empower people to learn how to do genealogy.
