In Response To: Re: Blair Underwood ancestry- SCOTT/HUMBLE ()
It takes work and dedication to research your family history but the benefits and knowledge you gain from it, are immeasurable. Knowing your family history tells you how your ancestors fit in the country's history and also tell you a little about yourself - after all, the people who raised you were raised by people who came before them. You should do, as someone else recommended and look at Paul Heinegg's discussion of free African Americans, which you can view online, and you may be surprised to find a free ancestor there who later migrated to Alabama or his descendants did. Happy hunting!
