Cherokee Registry

The free tools and resources on this site are meant to aid families in researching their Cherokee ancestry and registering for tribal citizenship. Our goal has always been to collect and preserve the stories and family history of Cherokee descendants. From this foundation, we improve the process of connecting related story elements to discover new clues and information not otherwise possible.

Not only are the stories of tribal members important, but also those of non-Natives whose ancestors were a part of Cherokee history. An example would be the Rev. Evan Jones.


We are developing software and mobile applications to help discover and preserve family history, locate lost Cherokee graves, and help people to grow their family tree.
