My grandma Ruth told us we are Cherokee before she died. It used to be taboo for her to discuss it and we don’t know her reason. She told us we were not on the registry because at one point her ancestor said they were white so they could buy land and live off the reservation. We really wish we knew more about our roots, our family. They lived in Missouri. I don’t even know my grandma’s maiden name. Her first marriage was to Rodney Webb. This was my dads dad. I have never met my dad. Just his brothers Rodney and Jack. All of us in search of this information. My brother and I tried DNA tests but results were hard to figure out and brought too many matches to follow. I don’t know if anyone can help us but thanks.
