Often times African American people sell the land without knowledge of mineral and oil rights. How often do we talk about the mineral and oil rights in our families? When was the last time you visit the courthouse to check on the mineral and rights oil, and gas lease? Have you consult with an attorney? Are you discussing these important matters at your family reunion?

Minerals rights and oil and gas leases differ from surface rights. A landowner may own the surface land but not the mineral rights of that land. The owner of the land should check on whether he/she has ownership of mineral rights or title of the land.

Joining the host is genealogists and family historians Tonia Askins and Melvin Collins. Their family history runs deep in Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parishes on the family branches of the Dudley,Williams, Cade Family.
