Does anyone have inroads into Seminole genealogy or rolls? A customer/friend of mine is seeking information about a particular family, but I have no idea where to direct her to begin!

Microfilmed Records Pertaining to Enumeration of Seminole Indians in Florida, 1880-1940
Locating Seminole living in Florida is not easy. Although most Seminole migrated to the Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) in the mid- nineteenth century, many remained in Florida. Because of the effort to relocate them to the Indian Territory, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) did not have a formal agency for the Seminole until 1913, so there are no BIA censuses until that date. Seminole are also enumerated in the federal census. The following information provides guidance on how to locate Seminole ancestors who lived in Florida using the regular federal census and special censuses created by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
