All Things Cherokee was created by me, Christina Berry, way back in March, 1998. I started the site as a personal genealogy website, posting family photos, stories, and the family tree to an account on Geocities (yes, the site is THAT old). The page also included a links page. Not surprisingly, it was the links page which garnered the most attention and traffic so I removed the personal details and started calling the site "The Cherokee Genealogy Page." Not very original, I agree. Finally in 2000, I rebranded the site as "All Things Cherokee" and registered the virtual domain. Been here ever since. Check the site out on the Wayback Machine. Pretty neat!
Now, over a decade later, the site has grown significantly and is one of the best resources for Cherokee genealogy on the web.
In addition to genealogy, the site has gone through a number of changes, and grown in all sorts of interesting directions. Now, we have an impressive Cherokee Art Gallery and even a Travel section. Always at the core is a heart-felt interest in providing helpful and interesting information about Cherokee history, culture, and genealogy.
Christina Berry - Owner/Operator
I am a tribal citizen of the Cherokee Nation, a member of the Cherokee Artists Association, and a charter member of the First Families of the Cherokee Nation. I was born in Oklahoma, but moved with my family to Texas when I was very young. Always a history buff, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in history. Additionally, I've been working with Cherokee and US genealogy and history records for over 15 years. I am a mixed-blood with ancestors from all over Europe and the US -- descended from Old Hop (Kana Gatoga) on one side and Robert the Bruce on the other.
When I'm not working on All Things Cherokee, I keep busy with photography, beadwork, and a massive home renovation project.
