Due to life circumstances, The Family Griot will be suspending this blog until further notice. It has been a wonderful journey researching and writing about my family, developing research techniques and connecting with other African-American genealogical and historical researchers and most importantly, learning about myself. In the upcoming weeks I will be posting papers and records that I've collected over the past few years, mainly for family members who would like to see the documentation from my research. I would like to express a heartfelt "Thank You" to everyone for their support of my research and The Family Griot blog.
