I was reading Bro omowalejabali 's thread Strange Fruit From The Family Tree and I got to wondering how I and others can go about finding more about their Family's history. So far, I know that Fredrick Douglas is one of my great uncles. But that's as far as I know on my mother's side. My father's side seems to be a mystery as he doesn't know his father and my grandmother never speaks about it. What are some ways to dig deep into finding more info?
