In 1906, the U.S. Government agreed to make a monetary settlement to Cherokee Indians. Approximately 45,000 people applied. This book gives the names, application numbers, addresses and family members of those who lived East of the Mississippi River who applied. With this information in hand, an individual may go to the National Archives and purchase one or more of the 348 rolls of microfilm which contain the complete records. Note, this edition has the same picture of Maude French Welch and her granddaughter, Joyce Welch Tranter taken in 1939 or 1940, but the background is red and white, not blue.
