Description

This course will provide an overview of the records (and where to find them) created by the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek (Muscogee), and Seminole prior to their removal to what would become Indian Territory in present day Oklahoma; records of the Dawes Commission; and other record groups that provide names of members of the Five Civilized tribes to about 1907.
