Microfilm

The archival microfilm collection contains materials regarding land and allotment documentation. These documents hold information about patents, applications, certificates and rolls, church and school records, as well as, federal records (letters received).

The Research Center has two microfilm machines that read and print these documents; one has a mechanical carrier the other a manual carrier. If you are interested in using these machines it is best to make an appointment in order to reserve time on the machine.
