Be careful what you believe. There is a lot of garbage on the internet that gives false hope to those who have heard they are Cherokee. I assure you, the only way you can know for certain is to do the research using standard genealogical methods. DNA won't tell you if you are Cherokee. Family stories prove nothing. And you can't tell by looking at old family pictures. Research, research, research. It is the only way to know.
Those are my thoughts for today. Thanks for reading.
