An Invitation for Settlers & Builders of Oklahoma
The Settlers and Builders of Oklahoma, under the jurisdiction of the Oklahoma Genealogical Society, was founded to recognize, honor, and perpetuate the memory of the residents that helped build the new State of Oklahoma from statehood, 16 Nov 1907 through 31 Dec 1929. Note: Anyone that resided in the Twin Territories prior to statehood is also eligible for the OGS First Families of the Twin Territories Lifetime Membership. You can nominate anyone you believe should be honored for their contribution(s) to the settling and/or building of Oklahoma. Get more information here.
For genealogists, knowing when someone was born or died can help determine whether or not you have the right person. The new vital records index includes death records occurring more than 5 years ago and birth records occurring more than 20 years ago. In 2016, the Oklahoma legislature passed legislation that now allows full death records to be public after 50 years and birth records to be public after 125 years. The Oklahoma Genealogical Society thanks Kelly Baker, OSDH Registrar of Vital Records for her leadership of this project which was delivered six months ahead of schedule.
OGS General Meeting
Billie Fogarty, Mike Birdsong and La Nell Shores will explore who helped settle and build Oklahoma after statehood.
