Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As one of the so-called civilized tribes, the Cherokee interacted with and even married non-Indians much more so than other Native Americans, so far more of their history is known. In 1921, Starr recorded the biographies and genealogies of as many Cherokees as he could find across the United States, generating many hundreds of such records. The information here will provide great fodder for anyone researching the Cherokee. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Excellent Cherokee Genealogy Book

    This is an excellent! book for people researching their Cherokee heritage or just wanting to read about some of the history of the Cherokee Indians. Emmet Starr did an outstanding job of keeping records expecially for the time this book was written.
