  • Cherokee on my Mom's Dad's side

    I am Cherokee on my Mothers side , through my grandfather. What DNA test would I want to have to learn about the Cherokee side? I am a true novice but very interested in learning about the Cherokee just not sure how to go about that.

    Have him or one of your mother's brothers [or equivalent] take a y-DNA test and get a y-haplo assignment. That can tell you more about your grandfathers male-male-male lineage.

    Have your 'indian' grandfather or his oldest living descendant, like your mom, take the FF test, along with yourself of course. Your FF should give you some info on his mother's x-DNA as you should inherit some of his mother's x-DNA from your mom.

    That's the best I can suggest w/o knowing more.
