The general collection includes extensive census records and indexes to include the U. S. census 1790 through 1820 complete, numerous complete state census records for various years, 1870 census index, all Oklahoma census records with a soundex for Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory 1900. Other items of special note are: Indian-Pioneer History, all Delaware County newspaper microfilm and some from surrounding areas, the LDS Family Search on CD-ROM, War of the Rebellion: Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies.

The Cherokee collection includes a searchable CD-ROM of the Dawes Roll, and the Cherokee census cards and applications on microfilm. The collection includes nearly all Cherokee censuses and rolls and numerous books about the Cherokee.

The Delaware County Genealogical Society, Inc. supports the genealogical collection and assists family researchers. Researchers making queries are asked to put them in writing and mail or e-mail to the society. For more information visit the Delaware County Genealogical Society, Inc. home page.
