Oklahoma Land Run - 1889 & 1893
One of the most popular subjects in Oklahoma history is the Land Runs. When homesteader made his claim he reported to one of the twelve US district land offices established in Oklahoma Territory. The collection of 1889 Homestead Registers contains specific information such as residences, names, dates, tracts of land, the number of acres, etc. These records are useful for tracing a family's arrival in the Territory. Also, the State Archives have photographs from the 1893 Land Run in the Cherokee Strip.
