About Our Family Research


Now in my 60's and at last have the time, before it's too late for me anyway. I want to know who I am. Would like to find out about where I come from.
I grew up seeing an aunt with very dark olive skin, my mother's brother and sister and my mother were all light brown skinned. At the tender age of fourteen, one of my father's brothers informed me I was colored. You could have knocked me over with a feather. Here was me with fair skin and freckles.
Then when I had children I fathered a daughter with lovely olive skin. For some reason my mother's family would never talk about where her father was from. Only in the last two years of her life on earth, she told me her grandmothers name and where she was born.
