    Yea I wish my uncle knew the names and years and places of my Great Grandparents. That probably be better to trace to the rolls. :(

    okay virgil being born 1905 not sure when the dawes rolls started but from where you say they lived most likely on the western rolls

    okay just looked at baker and churchill (1908) and there are no davids or van cleaves

    so I guess then you need to check the dawes on the western hope that helped get you started

    Ok this is what I have so far. My grandma is Vivan David born in some town called Avenue,MO or KS in 1921. Died in same town in 1987. Either her father or some how related name is Arthur David. I think not sure though he died in 1921 in the same town.

    My grandpa is Virgil Van Cleave not exactly sure where he was born at or died, but he was born in 1905 and died in 1967. That is about all I have at this time.:(

    If you know you have cherokee then you should know who else in your family is cherokee too, otherwise how do you know?

    do you have any family names?

    if they are western then theres the emigration rolls for those that moved before removal or the dawes rolls too

    if eastern we base off the baker roll 1924

    unless you know who is on the siler, hester, chapman or churchhill rolls

    Yes there are plenty of unenrolled natives. It make it harder to trace your lineage though.:(

    yea. there's a lot of people that were not enrolled because they were ashamed and then there's some tribes where you can only enroll if your father was that tribe and many many other reasons. Unless you're cherokee then u just have to be a descendant of a descendant of the tribe. ;)

    YOu do not need to know how much. You need to know where they were born. Were they really Indian or is it just talk. What band were they from? Thier home towns will help you determine this. This can take months or years. Try Genweb the oklahoma site and others to find Cherokee names on the rolls.

    You mention your tribes. You need to see if any were enrolled members of each tribe. To be a cherokee you have to have a blood relative on one of the Dawes rolls.(1906) I have no idea about the Sioux but call tribal offices. Check the web for geneology sources. as you get info will try to help more.
