It is not too difficult to Find your Cherokee Ancestors in Georgia

If you believe that you have Cherokee ancestry, it is a good idea to do some research to find out!  The Cherokees in Georgia were a productive Nation and played a prominent part in the economy. They were farmers, and evidence of this is found throughout Hall, Gwinnett, Paulding, Jackson, Walton and Cobb Counties. Also, the evidence of many old trails still exist today. For example, the McIntosh trail near Brooks, Georgia in Fayette County. It is a paved road. One has to examine the landscape, searching for old mounds, creeks, etc.  In Paulding County there is the 12-Mile Creek, which is a stretch of land where families resided.  Arrows are found all along that creek. Some Cherokee families have been traced on Georgia Pioneers   Also available is the following:
