About this Event

DESCRIPTION

Tracing your Black & British roots? Want to extend your family tree? You’ve taken a dna test but found you have more questions than answers?

Trailblazing author and family historian Paul Crooks captivates his audience with how he traced his African Caribbean forebears enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica, 200 years ago.

In the 1990’s, Paul was told that it would be impossible to trace records of slave-ownership let alone his African ancestors enslaved on plantations in Jamaica. “No one had tried because such records did not exist.” Undeterred, he embarked on a journey of discovery that led from suburban North London to Jamaica and ultimately back to the Gold Coast of Africa; an effort that has brought him international recognition for his breakthroughs in Tracing black ancestry.

Paul captivates audiences with his unique account of how he traced his roots and his family’s migration down through the generations to Windrush.
