State History


Oklahoma became the 46th state in the Union on November 16, 1907.
It was given the nickname the "Sooner State" 
The Capital and the largest city is Oklahoma City. 
Today, the state contains more native American tribal headquarters than any other state, as well as the nation's largest American Indian population

The Oklahoma Tourism Department divides the state into six regions for tourism promotion purposes:

Red Carpet Country (Northwestern Oklahoma and The Panhandle)
Great Plains Country (Southwestern Oklahoma, including the Lawton Metropolitan area)
Frontier Country (Central Oklahoma, including the Oklahoma City Metropolitan area)
Green Country (Northeastern Oklahoma, including the Tulsa Metropolitan area)
Kiamichi country (Southeastern Oklahoma)
Lake & Trail Country (South Central Oklahoma)

Territorial Marriage Records
Marriage records can be found in the courthouse of the county in which the marriage took place. Prior to statehood in 1907, marriages of non-Indian citizens in Indian Territory were recorded by the US Federal Court.
