Welcome to JG RootsFinders,
I am Juanita Gaston, a genealogical researcher and instructor. In 2013, I founded JG RootsFinders, LLC - a genealogy and family history research company that specializes in African American family history. I wanted to help others, especially African Americans, gain a better understanding of where they've come from and some of the pivotal events and circumstances which create their unique family histories. Knowing the historical path of our ancestors can inspire, ennoble, and connect us.
To meet your research needs, I work with a resources team. We have access to state archives and local libraries, as well as access to subscription genealogical databases. As a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists JG RootFinders is committed to ethical conduct and the highest level of integrity with clients and business partners.
For a free Consultation, please visit the contact us page to let us know your research needs. We will be happy to give you a quote. No project is too small. Let's become partners so we can get started empowering YOU as we discover your roots.
