About K. Welsh

It all started when I was about 3 or 4 years old. My dad sat me down and started giving me the family history. My parents backed this up with books that they would purchase annually, as well as encyclopedias very 2-3 years.

By the time I was 12 we had a library at our house. The other kids in our Bronx, NY, neighborhood would rather come to our house than the public library. At that same time, I stopped just trying to memorize what my parents told me and started taking notes.

At 17, my dad took me on a trip to Jamaica (my birthplace). We visited 7 out of the 14 parishes, and met many relatives. By the time, I was in my early twenties, I was helping people track down their roots (all along the East Coast).

I relocated to Miami to further my education in 1990, thus expanding "my clientele" internationally. For the next 4 years, I was not only was a college student, but a quest lecturer and assistant professor (without degree) teaching history and researching. In 1994, I relocated to Los Angeles. The first thing I did was find a local genealogical society, CAAGS - California African American Genealogical Society. After about four years there, I was elected president for a two-year term. Since then, I have expanded my research using the Internet and specifically different genealogical websites.
