Want to know if any of your ancestors or relatives
applied for Cherokee Enrollment in the early 1900's? Search the Guion
Miller 1909 Applications for Cherokee Enrollment. Note:
Pages are alphabetical by the first letter of the surname. If your
surname is "HECTOR" you would click on the file marked "Surnames beginning
with H". There may be more than one file for each letter of the alphabet.
The files are digitized copies (a picture) of the original index, so they
are graphic intensive, but well worth the wait! If you
find a name you are interested in, you can order a copy of the original
application, which can be a genealogical GOLD MINE!
