Default Is Mary a descendant of King David?

Is Mary a descendant of King David?
Where is it shown in Scripture?
Both genealogies of Jesus refers to Joseph, NOT Mary, though the Prophet's promise was that the Messiah would come from David's loin!
Can her parents both be from Priestly families? (as claimed in "In the Footsteps of God DVD")
Since Priests are from the tribe of Levi, while David was from Judah, that does not seem right.
Help clarify this. That DVD is used in the RCIA Program at St. Lawrence, Tampa, and I assume other places as well.
Thanks!

Josef,

These links should help you to understand and share with others what we know of the ancestry of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by these links, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
