Research online of the Genealogy of the Grand Ronde Tribe

Recently, I have a found that online research on tribal genealogy  is better than before. The Internet Archive has published perhaps all of the M595 series of annual censuses of the tribes. This annual census occurred from 1885-1940. Some ten years ago I acquired the complete M595 microfilm series copies of tribes in Oregon and Washington. I got them for $35 each just before the price was raised. Now my copies are redundant as this is all available online and for download. I have not been able to download yet any of the digital copies but I hope to be able to soon. The links to the files are below.

Reel 459 – Indians of North America–Census; Native American Census – Salem (Indians of Grande Ronde and Siletz Reservations and Non-Reservation Indians): 1933-39

In addition, the Internet Archive has the federal censuses that relate to the tribes. The census for The Grand Ronde Reservation is within the census for Polk County.   The Indian schedules, the special pages related to Indians on the reservation are behind the Polk county pages. I search for- Polk county, Oregon census “year”.  The federal census is only every 10 years.

Some are shown below.
