Legacy Tracing 

"IF YOU KNOW WHENCE YOU CAME, THERE IS REALLY NO LIMIT TO WHERE YOU CAN GO."

JAMES BALDWIN

Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Americans often do not know their ancestral legacy as a result of enslavement and systematic erasure of their names and humanity. As time passes, the ability to recover these lost ancestral legacies becomes increasingly more difficult. Legacy Tracing™ teaches people how to recover, document and preserve their lost ancestral legacy using a unique, multi-phase research process based on traditional and genetic genealogy.

All History Makers Workshops teach Legacy Tracing™.
