We are a firm dedicated to connecting people to their family history by conducting in-depth ancestral research.
collect – confirm – connect
There is an innate power in knowing your people. We strive to empower Black people throughout the diaspora with their family’s legacy that may have been lost or forgotten. Our mission is to help you collect research and evidence, confirm relationships, convince through supporting research and evidence, and connect history to the present.
We specialize in African American genealogy with a heavy focus in Southwest Louisiana and other Southern states. We offer services that include slave ancestral research, oral history interviewing, record retrieval, running educational workshops and lectures, and so much more.
