Henry Louis Gates Jr. Answers Genealogy Questions

To kick off Black History Month, Henry Louis Gates, host of the PBS series Finding Your Roots, will be answering genealogy questions on a blog called The Root.

He explains how he became enamored with genealogy when he began delving into his own family’s past.

The first question he answers is about researching a family member the reader believes was a Creek Indian from Tennessee who was brought to Ohio.

To answer, Gates enlists help from the New England Historic Genealogical Society and suggests looking for formal county court records in which the family member’s name is mentioned. He then points the reader to the U.S. Census records in Ohio.
