Cherokee DNA Studies II

Cherokee DNA Studies II: More Real People Who Proved the Geneticists Wrong

By Donald N. Yates and Teresa A. Yates

Cherokee DNA Studies IIPhase III of DNA Consultants’ Cherokee DNA Studies adds more than fifty new participants to what has become a classic project. They’d all been told there was no way they could be Indian, given their DNA haplotype. This book underlines the conclusion that most pre-Columbian “Indian” lineages in Eastern North America originally came across the Atlantic Ocean, not over any land-bridge from Asia. Update your priors with this sweeping attack on “big box” companies and know-it-all experts. Includes historical photographs, genealogies, graphs, charts, references, index and raw data.
