Gotcha, thanks! Pretty interesting how DNA tests are so inconclusive. Perhaps best, then, to regard the centuries of U.S. government and Cherokee tribal documentation as the most reliable sources. As genealogist David Cornsilk put it, the Cherokee are “third after royalty and Mormons” in terms of exhaustive family tree documentation.
