On the 13th of March Trailblazing author and family historian Paul Crooks captivates his audience with a presentation of how he traced his African forebears enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica, 200 years ago.

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.” In the 1990’s, 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 African Caribbean genealogy research.

By 1999, Paul had realised the slave Registers' potential for researching Caribbean Ancestry and African Roots. Paul’s revelations preceded a flurry of inquiries into the slave registers and slave compensation records.

Paul will talk about his journey and how he traced his roots. This will be followed by questions and answers.You are of course, welcome to come along and ask questions about Paul's journey to find his roots. Maybe Paul can guide you on how you might go about next steps.
