    American Indian genealogy - Missouri
    State Historical Society of Missouri - Our reference library has a splendid Indian collection for the historian, but our published sources are incomplete for tracing Indian genealogy. By 1836, Indian tribes in Missouri had been removed and no longer had claims to any Missouri land. The Society does not have, nor are we aware of, lists of rolls of Indians in Missouri. Individuals who left the "Trail of Tears" did not maintain their tribal status in most cases

    Chickasaw Nation Lineage Information Request Form
    You will need to know the name, roll number and tribal affiliation of your nearest enrolled blood ancestor in order to apply for your Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB). Indians that moved to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) were enrolled on the Dawes Commission Rolls of 1898- 1906. If your ancestors did not come to Indian Territory, or were not living here during that time period, they were probably not enrolled with any tribe. In order for you to be issued a CDIB, you must know this person's name and tribal affiliation. You may submit four names to be researched to determine their tribal affiliation, to see if they were enrolled and/or to receive copies of the census cards on which their names appeared.
