CD: Vital Information from the Guion Miller Rolls: Eastern Cherokee Court of Claims, 1906-1909 - Billy Dubois Edgington and Carol Anne Buswell. In 1904 the Eastern Cherokees won a million dollar judgment against the U.S. because of its violations of the treaties of 1835-6 and 1845. The payments were to go to all living persons who had been members of the tribe at the time of the treaties, or to their descendants. The Miller files contain about 46,000 applications submitted by members of the tribe, or their descendants. This CD-ROM lists all applicants alphabetically, and provides application numbers for further research. Each entry gives the birth year, birth place, and residence-at-application, maiden names when given, and the Soundex code for the person’s surname. This work is in all-electronic format. The CD-ROM uses the powerful Adobe Acrobat reader (for Windows, provided free on the CD; the corresponding viewer for Macintosh and other operating systems can be downloaded free of charge from www.Adobe.com). The software allows the user to search all the text. When you run a search, the "hits" are highlighted on each page for easy identification. 1999, CD, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v5, PC and Mac, 1020 pp.
