Heritage Seekers

We believe that all family history should be told. You never know if what you share may help you find yet another family member. The authors of the upcoming book No Longer Forgotten: The Voices of Our Ancestors Speak does just that.

Coming soon in December 2013 the group of family historians, now called the Heritage Seekers, were not long time friends. They did not have regular gatherings to discuss their family history. In fact, their paths only crossed while researching there individual families.

In the new release, each writer’s story begins with a trigger, such as a name, a place, an item, or an event that motivated them to seek additional information. Read about the history of a small county in SC and seven unique stories that give life to the enslaved, the land owners and the farmers as they retell their struggles and achievements through the eyes of their descendants’.
