All Things Cherokee Recommendation: This book is an excellent start if you are researching Cherokee families on the Guion Miller roll. The book is just an index, and will require additional research into your family tree, but it’s a handy reference for looking up your ancestors. It also lists those who applied but we rejects, which makes it an even more excellent resource.
