With the release of our new database atDNA 10.4, you can now find out if you have a high match to either or both of two old reference populations U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n = 62) and U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n=92), and to the new population called U.S. Cherokee Enrolled (n = 33) or any of the more than 60 North American tribes now available.
For more information on the Cherokee people see our population page.
If you receive a positive match you may then order a Special Cherokee Match Certificate. This is not a stand-alone product and cannot be ordered by itself unless we have your DNA fingerprint results (CoDIS markers, alleles) on file. To order the full product, including a lab test, purchase a Native American DNA Fingerprint Plus.

Find out where your Cherokee ancestry ranks. Update only, no lab test.
Disclaimer: This is a forensic DNA test based in part on publicly available tribal American Indian data published in J. Ng et al, “Native American Population Data Based on the Globalfiler® Autosomal STR loci,” Forensic Science International: Genetics 24:e12-e13. This is a non-chain-of custody test and cannot be used for legal or administrative purposes. It does not yield percentages of ethnicity. Note that no DNA results are accepted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to claim membership. Your Native American ancestors may be very far removed generationally or their genes are too weak to register statistically. Your results may or may not confirm expected ethnic composition, family history or genealogical determinations. Alone, no DNA ancestry test may be used to prove identity, biological relationships, nationality, citizenship, immigration or tribal enrollment.
