I have an answer to this question upon further research, each family member will fall under the same roll number but will have their own individual registration number. Their registration number is what will identify them as tribal members.
Hello, and thank you for submitting your question to History Hub!
Before we can provide guidance on your question, we must know the kind of rolls. There are other matters that may be important, but to narrow it down further we should know what you're referring to. There are the Indian Census Rolls or the Dawes Rolls, for example.
Alex, thank you for your reply it is truly appreciated, I would have been speaking primarily of the Indian Census Rolls. I thank you for distinguishing the difference which a lot of us don’t fully understand. I think I get it now please correct me if I’m wrong,.
Dawes rolls establish a lineage to establish lineage.
Indian Census Rolls establish individual enrollment.
