My name is Sarah and I’m the new Project Leader for The Native Americans Project. This is your project check-in letter. I would love to hear back from you about your current Native American research interests and project related activity.
Sarah Mason, NA Project Leader
My research continues to be focused on the Dawes Enrollment Cards for Choctaw and Chickasaw. I am of Choctaw and Chickasaw descent through my paternal side. While doing research on my family I discovered the Dawes Packets and have found them to provide interesting insights into the lives of those who were removed from their lands during the Trail of Tears and their families. As I have hit a wall for my family, I started to go through the Dawes information looking for family and in doing so it appeared that from the information I was sifting through that I could help other people by simply entering into WikiTree what I find. This turned into a obsession and currently I have gone through 966 Dawes Enrollment Cards and have created or verified the profiles for everyone on these cards along with their families whom I discover in this endeavor. Of course I do miss some people along the way, but having the information I add could help others discover those I missed. I put sources of what I find into the profiles. It is my hope that this will help people doing their family genealogy. Along the way I have found more of my family. This year I have completed the first 100 Chickasaw Dawes Enrollment Cards and currently working on the Choctaw Enrollment Cards. I became sidetracked while reviewing Watchlist Activity which has taken me to Elizabeth Jane Barnett nee Airington on card 4159. While researching this card it has taken me to cards 3335, 3337, 3347, 4160, 11, 4163 and several others. For me, this is like a giant puzzle where you never run out puzzle pieces.

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the Native American Project.
