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.

Myron has a deep love for history as well as the deep and abiding pride in his family. As a result, the desire in him to find out about his roots: about where he came from, where his parents grew up, as well as their parents. He wondered about the kind of life did they lived; what type of life they had ----was it a life of Providence or did they have a great deal of struggling. there was just the driving force in him to know did he came from business minded people or people who worked the as farmer and made a life as best they could with what they were blessed with for their family's sake. we all know that there was always challenges for black people during our past history. Myron simply had to know how they dealt with life and living during those times; the pain and the struggles and led to for the future generations. It was a dedicated joy for him to spend hours and hours searching and searching to find the answers to all of his questions about my forefathers. It is truly a labor of love to discover where you came from and it adds to who you are as a black person and especially for him as a black man in America.
