Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency

History

A farmer-in-charge was assigned to the Digger Reservation near Jackson, California as early as 1899, but there are no known records for the agency prior to 1907. From 1915-1920, this farmer-in-charge also had responsibilities for  the Indians of the Tuolumne Reservation. The agency was discontinued and transferred to Reno Agency, 30 July 1921.[1]

Records

A few records of the Digger Agency are in the Pacific Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in San Francisco[2], including the following:

  • Tribal census records, 1911-1920
  • School census records from both the Digger and Tuolumne Reservations, 1915-1917
  • Other administrative records, 1915-1920

Microfilm copies of ...Narrative and Statistical Reports... for the Digger Agency, 1907-1921, are included in National Archives Microcopy M1011, Roll 21[3], available in the National Archives system and in the collections of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, beginning with their film number 1724251.
