In Response To: Re: Oprah's Roots ()

Thanks Richard! Put some perspective on it!

I'm appreciative and grateful for anyone who shines a light on African Ancestored genealogy.

AND the program mentions or lists AfriGeneas.com among its resources! How good is that?

That's what I'm screamin'!

Finding Oprah's Roots: Finding Your Own (Hardcover)
by Henry Louis Jr Gates is available from Amazon.com for $13.57

Amazon's Editorial Reviews

Finding Oprah’s Roots will not only endow readers with a new appreciation for the key contributions made by history’s unsung but also equip them with the tools to connect to pivotal figures in their own past. A roadmap through the intricacies of public documents and online databases, the book also highlights genetic testing resources that can make it possible to know one’s distant tribal roots in Africa.

For Oprah, the path back to the past was emotion-filled and profoundly illuminating, connecting the narrative of her family to the larger American narrative and “anchoring” her in a way not previously possible. For the reader, Finding Oprah’s Roots offers the possibility of an equally rewarding experience.
