Oklahoma Compiled Genealogies
Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.
A major manuscript collection is the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection (Family History Library films 862003-010 and 858639). This contains transcripts of Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, death, obituary, and probate records. It was microfilmed in 1971 at the DAR Library in Washington, D.C., and is available at the Family History Library.
Additional volumes, which have not been filmed, have been added at the DAR Library. The DAR has indexed the volumes that were filmed in 1971, and the additional volumes. An every-name index is found on the DAR Internet site www.dar.org . The DAR Library will provide photocopies from their volumes for a fee.
The following are published indexes to family and genealogical information. These also include lists of researchers and the Oklahoma family lines they are researching.
