Osiyo! Welcome to my website. My name is Darren McCathern. I am a former member of the advisory board of the WorldGenWeb, and have worked on several projects in many countries around the world, in an effort to help others find their roots. :)
Genealogy is very close to my heart. It is my hope that our people will find that vital piece of information that will bring them closer to their heritage and will enable us to unite and gather our families as a way to honor our ancestors.
I am happy to announce that I am offering lookups on several important Cherokee Census Rolls to help assist you in your research.
Looking for answers can sometimes be very difficult and confusing with all of the different records available. Many are not able to prove their connection due to the absence of written documentation.
One of the contributing factors is a lack of evidence. This stems from historical events that forced people to move from one place to another to avoid problems that took place in the past.
So let's review some of the events that have made our quest so difficult. To gain a perspective of the mindset of our ancestors, let's attempt to walk in their moccasins and try and trace the footsteps of our loved ones.
