We are the only DNA testing company with actual Cherokee data. Others may advertise with the come-on “Cherokee?” but do not have the data, so go figure! With our database atDNA 8.0 you can now find out if you have a high match to the new reference population called U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n = 62). This forensic population was created in house from a combination of participants in our Cherokee DNA Studies and a random sample of customers who indicated to us that they identified as Cherokee.
The Cherokee population was added to our method in December 2014.
Your personal DNA profile is compared with our data for 26 American Indian populations from eight countries in North and South America. In addition to Cherokee, possible matches included Apache, Navajo, Salishan, Inuit, Lumbee, Maya, Huichols and Canadian aboriginal tribes, representing a total of nearly 4,000 subjects who identified as Native American, American Indian, indigenous or aboriginal in forensic studies.
If you receive a positive match your report will include a Special Cherokee Match Certificate. If you do not receive a high Cherokee match your report will include a Deluxe Native American Certificate listing your other Native American matches, depending on your results. You may also order a quality color print of your certificate that is mailed to you.
