New Edition now available!
Stephen Hanks spent over 10 years tracing his family history thru slavery records in 5 States, leading finally to identifying his African Ancestor's name and tribe. AKEE TREE - 204 pages, photos, and 15 chapters, tells an incredible story to never give up despite the odds to learn the truth of one's family, even if one has to contact the white descendants of the slave owner, as the author had to do. Also included is the research the author discovered about slaves named Winfrey in Mississippi and Georgia, and a connection to actor Tom Hanks.
