          Dear Mr. Gourd,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 5 series in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that include records pertaining to the Cherokee removal. For more information, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at archives1reference@nara.gov.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          In addition, we suggest that you review the National Archives websites about  Records Pertaining to Cherokee Removal, 1836-1839 and for Tips and Tools for K-12 Teachers and Students.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
