NOTE:  Naturalization Laws...During the years 1907-1922, a woman who married a foreigner lost her US Citizenship and took the nationality of her husband.  She would have to re-apply to regain her US Citizenship.  If she divorced, she had to re-apply for citizenship.  It was after 1922 that the woman did not lose her citizenship if marrying a non-American.
        Between 1804-1906 a widow became a citizen if her husband had filed his declaration of intentions but had died before he became a naturalized citizen.  She only needed to take an oath of allegiance.  After 1906 she had to comply with the other provisions, except for filing a declaration.

NATIVE AMERICAN RECORDS
    Native Americans fell into 2 categories:  (1) those who remained on reservations and (2) those who mingled into non-Indian societies.


    Indian names changed when married to a white man.  Records fell into two categories, (1) The Five Civilized Tribes and tribes who were made wards of the government.  The Five Tribes were:  Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole.  Records can be found at the National Archives in Ft. Worth, Texas, The Oklahoma Historical Society.  These include tribal census rolls, enrollment cards, allotment and payroll records, and tribal citizenship, service records that include those who served in the American Revolution and Civil War to current date.
   
    The white people who married Indians were not listed on the US Census records, if the marriage took place in Oklahoma, Arkansas or Missouri before 1869.  In 1906, all Indians had to fill out a claim including children, parents, grandparents, birth, death, etc.  The National Archives in Washington, D.C. has the applications to the Court of Claims.
