Sample of Dawes Enrollment Cards:   Cherokee Nation - By Blood Cards

Note these are images taken from National Archives Microfilm.  They can be seen at all of the branches of the National Archives throughout the country, and at the main National Archives facility in Washington DC.  They are part of National Archives publication M1186.  Each record set on  microfilm has a publication number and should be cited when using these records.

These particular samples come from the Cherokee Nation, and are presented to show the different kinds of records one can use for family research when using the Dawes Files.
