Early Settlers Certificates
Early Settler certificates are issued to descendants of persons who came to Idaho between Statehood, 3 July 1890 and 31 December 1900.    Applicants must prove direct descent.  The ancestor need not have been born here; they need not have stayed here but applicants must prove they were here during the specified time.
