Oneida

History

A boarding school was opened on the Oneida Reservation in 1892. It was under the jurisdiction of the Green Bay Agency. The school was made independent of Green Bay in 1895 and made an agency in 1900. The school closed in 1919 and the agency abolished. The Oneida Indians were then assigned to the Keshena Agency[1].

Records

A small amount of records of the Oneida Agency are in the Great Lakes Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Chicago, including marriage certificates, 1907-1908[2].

Annual Indian Census Rolls were taken at this agency for 1900 thru 1920. These rolls have been microfilmed by the National Archives as part of their Microcopy Number M595, rolls 315 and 316[3]. Copies of these records are also available at the National Archives, their Regional Archives, and at the Family History Library and its family history centers (their microfilm numbers 579725-579726). These census rolls are also available online at Ancestry.com's subscription web site.

Microfilm copies of ...Narrative and Statistical Reports... for the Fort Peck Agency, 1907-1919, are included in National Archives Microcopy M1011, Roll 95[4], available in the National Archives system and in the collections of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, beginning with their microfilm number 1724313.
