Eastern Cherokee By Blood, 1906 1910. Volume Iiiby Jeff Bowen
The volume at hand is the third in a series by Mr. Jeff Bowen based on the Guion Miller applications. Volume III, like its predecessors, begins with a helpful Introduction describing the origins of the Guion Miller rolls and the methodology used in abstracting them. The text itself consists of 3,677 additional applications of the 45,847 examined by Miller. Mr. Bowen has culled every shred of genealogical value from the applications (part of Record Groups 75 and 123 of the Bureau of Indian Affairs), which in every case provides the application number, the applicantΓÇÖs name and city of residence, the number of other persons in the applicantΓÇÖs family, references to family members found in other applications, and the disposition of the application. In many instances, moreover, Mr. Bowen has supplemented the core elements found in the abstracts with references to other family members by name, relationship(s), and dates of birth and/or death. The researcher will find references to about 5,000 Cherokee descendants in this volume, bringing the total number in volumes I through III to 16,000.
