Researching Your African Roots
Have you ever thought about tracing your roots, but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’ve started to research your ancestry but got stuck. Well, we have just the person that will be able to help to you with this.
Paul Crooks is credited with inspiring an upsurge in interest in Black and British ancestry. Paul pioneered research into African Caribbean genealogy during the 1990s. He traced his family history from London, back 6 generations, to ancestors captured of the West African coast and enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica. He gained national recognition for his work when he appeared on Who Do You Think You Are? (Moira Stuart).
In his first time ever coming to Leicester, Paul will talk about his journey and how he traced his roots. He will give some top tips on how you can start your research, where you can find information and much more. There will also be a Q & A where he will try to answer as many of your questions as he can.
