About The Speaker

Paul Crooks is unique as a published author and genealogist with a specialist interest in Black ancestry and African Caribbean history. He came to prominence with his pioneering research into African Caribbean genealogy During the 1990s, when he became the first to trace his family history back 6 generations, from London to his ancestors captured off the West African coast 200 years ago. He discovered his ancestors were enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica. His books, Ancestors and A Tree Without Roots - The Guide To Tracing British, African and Asian Caribbean Ancestry brought him international recognition for his breakthrough research into Black ancestry.

Paul appeared on Who Do You Think You Are? with Moira Stuart as the expert in African Caribbean family history. He is credited with inspiring an upsurge in interest in Black and British ancestry. He is also recognised for having spawned an industry in African Caribbean genealogy.
