    My ggrandmother is Helen and her brother is Claude as to their parents I have no idea. Both are full Cherokee and from KY.
    I have had no luck locating them anywhere and if it had not been for the obituary I found for her I would not have her SSN but I was told that her parents may not be found by that way. Is it possible???

    I now have a pic of her thanks to a cousin I was shocked since I was beginning to think she and her full Osage husband didn't exist LOL

    If you found an obit on her and have a SSN on her, then there is a death record for her and most likely her parents are listed right on her death cert. Social Security didn't come around until 1937 and wasn't Federal mandated until 1954. Also, you can get a copy of her Social Security application (for a fee) and that will, also, tell you who her parents were.

    And Kentucky records are awesome 'cause it's an open record state and you can find just about anything you want on just about anyone. But remember that may times people couldn't spell, so some names might be mis-spelled and that's something that you might look at too.

    Good luck

      Thanks I was worried that it would be blank if I sent for her information.

        Chances are that it won't be blank because she's the one who filled it out. However, it would actually be cheaper to go through the county in KY that she died in first and get her death cert and see if it lists them there.

          She was born in Rochester KY but died in either MO or KS her and my ggrandfather lived in Turner KS so I suspect she passed in KS but will have to find out from my cousin and see if he knows. Thanks TT!

            If you found an obituary on her, then it should say where she died (or at least where she was living at the time of her death) and many times even where she's buried. I haven't done much research in KS or MO, but a little. Not really sure how easy it will be to get those records, but shouldn't be all that difficult after the 1950's.

              What do you think of CIB and Tribal cards?

              Okay was repling to Annie Deer's - things to think about at pow wows, and got off on a tangent- so here goes.

              The Dawes Act. Was supposed to "help" the natives by assilmilating them into the white culture. It broke up reservations into family plots and handed them out to...

              Guion Miller Roll
              by Josiah
              For people who are researching Cherokee ancestry this is perhaps one of the most valuable Rolls that was done on the Cherokee tribe.
              First lets go over the history of this Roll and why it was done at the Same time the Dawes Roll was in progress.

              It was Commissioned because of the...

              The “Northern Cherokee Nation of Arkansas and Missouri ”, based in Missouri, is not a state or federally recognized “tribe“. Nor is it accepted as a genuine Cherokee group (or as American...

              Dawes Rolls
              by Josiah
              Probably the most common Question I am asked is:
              I looked up my Ancestor and could not find them on the Dawes Rolls.

              The Dawes Rolls are probably the most misunderstood and misquoted roll in the history of Indian Rolls!
              Ok, to understand the Roll and what its telling you...

              Family Research
              by Josiah
              So during my research I have come across a series of stories that seem to have sprung up in the past 30 or 40 years. This is the idea of "Lost Cherokees". They are a variation of stories that have a common theme and that is: My ancestor separated from the main body of the tribe, and either...
