Note: you do not need a paypal account to donate any amount of money to support this website. Any and all donations are appreicated. At present I  am running  two websites & . Both websites are free of charge and have millions of visits per year. The problem (perhaps less of a problem than a cost) I am having is that the websites have become so popular that I have been forced to go to a dedicated server which will cost me over $2000/year. My websites are dedicated to African and African American history and contain millions of images, texts, videos and other material. I have added artists free of charge to my website so that they have a voice and place on the net. I have spent the last 10 years building and growing this site. I am an unemployed engineer and the reason this is relevant is because this is what keeps me going... this is what keeps me sane. It gives me a purpose. I would hate to lose it or take it down due to success... it would be devastating.

My work has a powerful impact not only on the people that I work with directly, but also on the world as a whole. I have seen my traffic from Europe, Africa, Asia and Middle East explode in the last couple years and I hope I can continue to grow. I am at the point where I am  completely reliant on charitable donations in order to be able to continue to provide my services. Any amount you can share will be greatly appreciated and put to good use right here at home as well as thoughout the world.  email me if you have any questions.

Here is a web site from National Geographic that will help all African
Americans learn about their lineage going as far back tens of thousands of years. Iwould suggest that people of all races visit this website to purchase a kit and submit a DNA sample. Just like what Alex Haley accomplished to trace his heritage so should you :-) This site will be a learning experience for all races and cultures throughout this wonderful world of ours.

"When your results are ready Project Director Dr. Spencer Wells will introduce you to your earliest human relatives—the members of your specific haplogroup. You'll receive a personalized genetic analysis, including an online overview of your deep ancestral history. The analysis reveals where and when your haplogroup originated and how they lived. You'll also receive a dynamic map, specific to your lineage, on which to trace your relatives' journeys across the planet."
