I have been tracing my family history for the past 26 years and have made some great achievements and strides in my research. I am an African American. My understanding of life was close to the world by knowing only about a part of my ancestry. Now, I can reveal to you, the results of research that has made me one of the top genealogist in the world. On regular standards, I am just your ordinary genealogist. Being African American and a genealogist can make you give up your quest as fast as you start. I decided not to and today, I have the name of over 6250 people in my last edition of my family history. This is the combination history of the four grandparents that I have.
