I'm trying my best to help you!
The only Cherokee roll that will enable you and your family to become tribal members is the Dawes Roll of 1902/1906. But no one could just file an application, shout "I'm a Cherokee"! and get on that roll. They had to be ELIGIBLE! The site that I was trying to get you to look at would determine if any of your ancestors were eligible to be shown on that roll. If the only ancestors that you had who came to Oklahoma was living in Payne County, no matter WHAT their ancestry- they would NOT have been eligible, under any circumstances!

to see how strict the requirements were.
As for "pictures"-- at a meeting that I attended a very wise person remarked on this question-- He said "When we can put a picture in a boiling pot and extract a DNA from it, then match that DNA in all points to a living tribal member, ---- THEN we will pay attention to "pictures"!
