Re: Creek Old Series Cards
In Response To: Re: Creek Old Series Cards ()
Eli, the main point I was really trying to make was that there will always be a blood quantum (the reason for being on the by blood roll). Of course, there were mistakes, inconsistencies, regarding the blood quantum, but that person or family was still placed on the by blood roll.
Even on the 1900 Indian census, the blood quantums mentioned will probably not be the same on the census card. That family may not even be on the by blood roll (placed on the freedmen roll). There were a lot of errors, etc. during the Dawes Commission period.
