those with special interest in Native American families
from Kingfisher County and surrounding areas may share
their genealogical findings. These may include records of
any kind, including census records, birth, marriage, and
death records, and land records.
If you would like to share your research, please send your
information to me at TimeTrvlrO@aol.com,
with "NATIVE AMERICAN RESEARCH PROJECT" in the
subject line. (If you send your information as an attachment, please be sure that it
is in .txt format.)
