You are in for a treat as we visit with Jamaican native, Kenneth Kwame Welsh, who will share with us his genealogical journey which began when he was 3 -4 years old as his father began teaching him about his family history. 


"By the time I was 12 we had a library at our house. The other kids in our Bronx, NY, neighborhood would rather come to our house than the public library. At that same time, I stopped just trying to memorize what my parents told me and started taking notes.

"At 17, my dad took me on a trip to Jamaica. We visited 7 out of the 14 parishes, and met many relatives. By the time, I was in my early twenties, I was helping people track down their roots (all along the East Coast)," said Kenneth.

Join, our host, Robin Foster, to learn about Kenneth's experience assisting people internationally, as the president of the California African American Genealogical Society, and how technology such as Geni has allowed him to expand his research.
