Also a special thank you to the library staff who made us all so welcome! This photo shows a section of the many Native American Genealogy resources available at the library. These resources include the Dawes and Miller Rolls that were mentioned in the program today. There is also a Final Roll of the Five Civilized Tribes Book (one of the red books on the top shelf). The librarians on the second floor can help you if you have any problems finding any resources.
