Dear Ms. Hayden-Hart,
Thank you for using the History Hub!
Your first stop should be the Bureau of Land Management’s index of the General Land Office records. Search by your ancestor’s name and see if you get any results. That will help you in your search. From there you can use the Land Records page of the NARA website to drill down further, and contact the Archives 1 (Washington, DC) reference team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need them to look up the name in tract books or other land-related records.
Unfortunately the only digitized records relating to Indian Dawes Act allotments are of the Five Civilized Tribes. You can read more about these records on our website if you are interested.
Good luck with your research!
