    Cherokee Connections, review by Doni Barnes

    I bought this over the internet because I had heard that I was possibly part Cherokee, and had no clue about how to research the Cherokee Indians. When I received this 56-page paperback book, I was very disappointed. Here I was, expecting something to answer all of my research questions. I don't think I really expected it to give me details about my ancestors, but maybe I thought it would at least have lists of names and where to go for information. So, because I judged the book by not only the cover, but also the size, I put it away for a later date. I finally read it. Yep, got tired of my technical training manuals, and picked up some 'lighter' reading. It's true what they say, you know. Big things really do come in small packages. This unimpressive-looking book outlines the history and the main events of the Cherokee people. It also identifies some of the misconceptions of the Cherokees and how they came about becoming 'civilized'. Funny, after reading this book, even that word has changed it's meaning for me. After reading and tracking the Cherokees, their separation, and their eventual habitation of the reservations, the book also gives a very full list of 'Rolls and Census Records' - with details of what information you can find there, a quick checklist for any Cherokee researcher, and it even has an index for quick reference back into the book itself. You know, when I think of all the time and money I could have wasted tracking my Cherokee roots without this book, it really was worth it. It was even worth the violent sneezing attack after blowing the Arizona dust off the cover once I finally hunkered down to read it. Now, if you have no reason to research the Cherokees, this book will provide little value to you. But if you do, start with this one. It's a great introduction into the vast world of Cherokee research!
