Cherokee intermarried white, 1906

New to the collection is the series Cherokee intermarried white, 1906. These records were transcribed by Jeff Bowen from the National Archive film M-1301, Rolls 305-307 and include 288 intermarriage claims between Cherokees and non-Cherokees. These are official records that contain detailed genealogical information that may not be otherwise available. Application information in the form of sworn testimony can include ages, dates of birth, Cherokee names, dates of death, childrens' and parents' names and residence. Also included is the decision of the commission concerning whether or not the application was granted.  For those with Cherokee ancestors, these records can be a treasure trove.
