Interesting Facts

  • One of the youngest states (46th state in 1907), Oklahoma was explored by Francisco Vásquez de Coronado in 1541. The region was under the control of France and Spain at various points in history before becoming part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
  • Between 1825 and 1842 the federal government forced relocation of the "Five Civilized Tribes" (Creek, Cherokee,Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Seminole) by way of what is now known as the "Trail of Tears" to the area that is now western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. The Native Americans set up their own governments and schools in the area, then known as Indian Territory. Following the Civil War, the federal government reduced the size of the previously alloted reservations and allowed other tribes to move into the area, and eventually non-Native American settlers.
  • Beginning in 1889 a series of land runs were held , where settlers raced into the central tract of Oklahoma, formerly known as "Unassigned Lands." The first run took place on 22 April 1889 and an estimated 50,000 settlers snatched up parcels of land, giving birth to towns like Oklahoma City, Guthrie, and Kingfisher.

Oklahoma Census Research

Residents of Indian Territory other than Native Americans were enumerated in the federal census of 1860 in the schedules for "Indian Lands.

The first federal census for Oklahoma was taken in 1890, but the records were lost when the census was destroyed by fire. A special territory-sponsored census was taken in June 1890 for the seven territorial counties, including Beaver, Canadian, Cleveland, Kingfisher, Logan, Oklahoma, and Payne.  The Cherokee Nation took its own censuses in 1880 and 1890. Originals are at the Indian Archives, where microfilm copies are available for sale but not for interlibrary loan.

2020欧洲杯在线网址Federal census records for Oklahoma begin in 1900, when the present-day state was divided into Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory. The enumerations for both Oklahoma and Indian territories are on separate microfilm reels, and are enumerated in separate districts in the 1900 U.S. census on sasa-yan.com. The area called "Oklahoma" includes only the Oklahoma Territory counties, Oklahoma Territory Indian Reservation, and military and naval jurisdictions. The 1900 census for Indian Territory is grouped separately in microfilm reels following the territories.

In addition, a 1907 census of Seminole County is available.
