5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for those researching their Cherokee roots., December 13, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: History of the Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folk Lore (Hardcover)
This is an excellent refrence book for those researching their Cherokee ancestry. It contains the family pedigree's of the Old Settlers, e.g. those Cherokee's who arrived in Indian Territory (Oklahoma)prior to the Trail Tears including some who arrived later. A number of family histories are also included. Because Emmet Starr obtained most of his information from personal interviews with descendants, there are some errors, however the work is invaluable as a genealogy research tool.

This review is from: History of the Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folk Lore (Hardcover)
For anyone looking for Cherokee family connections, this is a good place to start. The historical facts are not in chronological order, and can be confusing however.

1.0 out of 5 stars poor quality translation, September 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The formatting of this book has characters in place of the subscript numbering that is crucial to understanding the family generations. I had to borrow my fathers old paper version and download the free google version to translate my families history. The content is invaluable to those researching Cherokee old settler families (those who voluntarily moved to Indian Territory in the early 1800s) if you can get past this poor translation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too hard to read., April 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are too many words mispelled and written in other languages. Just takes too long to try reading it. Would love to read it if it were written right.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old information and poor conversion to digital format, October 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While I expected this to be old information, I did not expect that the conversion would be so poor. The book was copied and then converted to text. No spell check was done on the new text to correct conversion errors. This makes it hard to read at times.

Loads of important information, especially for those searching for Native American roots. Would have been better if he had included dates, but otherwise a great addition to any library.
