Research Options

 

The OCGS has several items that we can research for you that are unique.  Listed below are individual things with which we can help contribute to your personal Family History.

The Okmulgee Daily Times Death Index:  An OCGS EXCLUSIVE!  This index is from November 1920 to present day.  Using this index, obituaries or death notices will be looked up on microfilm.  A copy will be sent to you.  Pricing for this service: a one or two name search is $10, if found.  Half of your charges will be refunded if nothing is  found.

1970 Cemetery Inventory:  In the mid seventies, the OCGS made an inventory of over 100 cemeteries in Okmulgee County.  Many of those gravestones no longer exist or are illegible! Fortunately, this information has been preserved. This valuable resource may provide grave information no where else available.  A list of cemeteries can be found HERE.  All burials are pre-1977.  Pricing for this service: $2 per name.

Marriage Records: For couples married in Okmulgee County, the original marriage records can only be found at the Okmulgee County Court House.  One of our volunteers will go to the Court House and research the records.  If an exact match is found, a copy of the recorded document will be sent to you.  The more information you can provide will increase the chances of finding an exact match.   Pricing for this service: $10.00 per name.

Yearbooks: The Okmulgee Public Library has the most complete collection of Okmulgee High School Yearbooks in existence.  This collection dates to 1912!  If you are like most families, yearbooks have vanished over the years.  A class photo of your loved one can be an exciting addition to your family history project.  The OCGS can help you find these photos and provide copies for your collection.  We can provide a couple of services to help.  Give us a name and an approximate year.  We will search that year and the 2 years before and the 2 years after, for a total of 5 years.  Depending on what is found, a copy of the individual class photo for the highest year discovered will be copied and sent to you.  In addition, we will provide information of any other pages found which contain photos of the name given.  This could include earlier class photos or may include group photos.  A list of these will be provided to you and copies can be obtained for any page(s) desired for an additional fee.  Pricing for this service:  The initial search (including a copy of picture and list of pages) is $5.00  Additional pages are $2.00 per page.  To see which yearbooks are available Click Here

Telephone Directories: The Okmulgee Public Library has Okmulgee City Directories  from  1909 to 2005.  Locating the exact address where an ancestor lived or worked can be an interesting find.  With today’s technology having an address allows you to even pull up a picture of the house or business right on your computer.  The OGCS can help with this by searching the City Directory collection and providing what information has been found.  Pricing for this service:  To maximize the results we will look for a name (individual or business) in 4 separate years for a single price of $3.00  To see which City Directories are available Click Here
