ARE YOU CHEROKEE?

Our free research assistance helps people to overcome obstacles in tracing their Cherokee ancestry. We will also assist you in obtaining the documentation needed to support applications for tribal citizenship.

The Cherokee Heritage Documentation Center offers the only recognition process for descendants of those individuals who surrendered their citizenship, or who “disappeared” from earlier rolls.


Our free assistance includes a search of our immense database and all key Cherokee rolls. Research is done on a first-come-first-served basis. For faster service, or if your goal is tribal membership, consider one of the premium options below.
