All of the information in this book has been transcribed from the records of the Department of Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs Records, which are part of the holdings of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. These annuity & per capita rolls were taken to determine the eligibility of persons of Indian descent to receive payment of monies as the result of U.S. Congressional Legislation and Treaties signed between the Indian tribes and the government of the United States. Each of the eight sections of the book lists the names of Seminole families which had been determined eligible to receive annuity payments. All the records contain the name of the head of the household, other members of the household, and the monetary payment. The 1877 roll also lists the identifying number, age, and sex of every individual named.
