Eastern Cherokee By Blood, 1906-1910. Volume Iiby Jeff Bowen
This book 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 3,775 additional applications of the 45,847 examined by Mr. 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 applicant's name and city of residence, the number of other persons in the applicant's 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 12,000 Cherokee descendants in this volume.
