The old series cards. Then the Dawes Commission used these cards to transfer information about families onto Dawes census cards. By blood families were placed on the by blood roll and freedmen families (with no blood quantum) were placed on the freedmen roll.
There were freedmen families that had blood quantums (such as Maria Pond, Cooper Davis, etc.) listed on the by blood roll but were transferred to the freedmen roll for various reasons by the Dawes Commission.
