In 1991, this writer began a journey of exploration into the annals of her family history. From that moment until now, Genealogy and family history has been her passion. Family history research led her to a discovery of many amazing accomplishments made by her ancestors and also exposed her the many painful events they faced as descendants both of Englishmen and Africans on the Caribbean island of Barbados.
With over 20 years of genealogical experience and an excellent grasp of social history, Sandra had made it her mission to share the bittersweet joys of family history research with the world. In 2016, Sandra founded the non-profit corporation Baobab Genealogy Society, Inc. with a mission to raise awareness and aptitude for this exciting, informative and inspirational look into the past.
Sandra is a sought after public speaker and presenter at conferences, museums, schools and universities, Libraries, churches, television, radio and other venues.
