    • Hello Ms. Harrell
      I am deeply in need of a history detective to dig up information on my ancestry I’ve come to a dead end, as you know no birth certificates before a certain date.My mothers’ real name is not on my birth certificate .She is now 87years of age and did manage to get her birth certificate with her real name and birth mothers name; the man who sign for it was not her real father, but she knows his name and who he was.

      I also learned that my grandmother’s grandfather raised her.Mr.Fiat or Fayette Jordan. I know his name but it can be spell many different ways I know where her mother was from Adams county now called Natchez Mississippi I think great, great grand father from Franklin county. Do you have any suggests on how to dig up this information, any help would be helpful thank you in advance.

  2. Outstanding as usual. I am an African-American descendant of William Christopher Harrell, and the family genealogist and retire college professor (43 years); therefore, my family and I genuinely appreciate your work to uncover American history.

  3. Just watched your Vice episode and you have inspired me. I am from Charleston, South Carolina and there are people in the Low Country that need you.
