1880 Cherokee Nation Census, Indian Territory (Oklahoma), Barbara L. Benge

1 1880 Cherokee Nation Census, Indian Territory (Oklahoma)
Barbara L. Benge
(2000), 2006, 8˝x11, paper, index, 2 vols, 606 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This book is a transcription of the 1880 Cherokee Nation census, complete with census card numbers, which were added in 1900. The Dawes Commission used these census cards for tribal enrollment, and each tribe had their own census cards. Some persons may appear on multiple cards if they were adopted by an associated tribe, as in the case of the Shawnee and Delaware who often appear on Cherokee census cards. There are also separate cards for the Freedmen of the tribe.Entries are grouped by districts-Canadian, Cooweescoowee, Delaware, Flint, Goingsnake, Illinois, Saline, Sequoyah, Tahlequah and Orphans. Transcribed entries include names, race, age and sex, with additional remarks by the original census takers transcribed when legible. A census column notes the 1900 Dawes census card numbers with some 1883 and 1894 entries, and indicates dead for persons that died between 1880 and 1900. Marital status is noted with yes or no. A fullname index, with surnames corrected or unified whenever possible, enhances this work.

2 Texas and Oklahoma Births, Deaths and Marriages from the Fort Worth Record: November, 1903 to November 1904
Bruce Bumbalough
2008, 8˝x11, paper, index, 252 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The Forth Worth Record started as a morning paper in 1903 in Fort Worth, Texas. The paper reported news from across Texas, Indian Territory, Oklahoma Territory, the nation, and the world. It provided coverage of the Russo-Japanese war, the presidential election of 1904, and the 1904 World's Fair, as well as extensive coverage of the railroads and their business activities, and much more. However, it is the vital statistics reported in the paper that are of particular interest to genealogists, and the abstracts herein are limited to births, deaths and marriages. Abstracts are arranged chronologically and surnames appear in capital letters as an aid to researchers. Birth records typically include: gender of the child, father's full name, and date of birth. Death records typically include: name of the deceased, date of death, and place of death. Some death records may also list the name of a relative, the cause of death and/or place of burial. Marriage records typically include: the full names of the bride and groom, date of marriage, and place of marriage. Some marriage records may also list the name of the official performing the ceremony and/or the name of the bride's father. A full name index adds to the value of this work.

The Czechs in Oklahoma, Karel D. Bicha

5 The Czechs in Oklahoma
Karel D. Bicha
87 pages, 6 x 9, paperback, University of Oklahoma Press
This book is one of a series entitled "Newcomers to a New Land," which analyzes the role of the major ethnic groups that have contributed to the history of Oklahoma. Though not large in number as compared to some other states, immigrants from various European nations left a marked impact on Oklahoma's history. As in the larger United States, they worked in many economic and social roles that enriched the state's life. Indians have played a crucial part in Oklahoma's history, even to giving the state her name. Blacks and Mexicans have also fulfilled a special set of roles, and will continue to affect Oklahoma's future. The history of each of these groups is unique, well worth remembering to both their heirs and to other people in the state and nation. Their stories come from the past, but continue on to the future.
