"JG Rootsfinders helped my family find answers to questions we had all our lives.  We were able to get information about our grandmother, who seemed to have fallen through the cracks as far as official documents are concerned.  I am so happy and appreciative to them for giving us back our family history.  Your team was thorough in their research and finish product, the clients reports.  Thank you also for your  professional.  JG Rootsfinders motto:  "Digging for your roots as though they were mine " is SPOT ON!!!"

Welcome to JG RootsFinders,


I am Juanita Gaston, a genealogical instructor and researcher. I founded  JG RootsFinders, LLC - a genealogy and family history research company that specializes in African American family history.  I wanted to help others, especially African Americans, have a better understanding of where they've come from and who they are. Knowing the path  our ancestors trod can inspire, ennoble, and connect us.


To meet your research needs, I work with a team and we have access to state archives and local libraries, as well as access to subscription genealogical databases.  Additionally, we  are a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and are committed to ethical conduct in our relationships with clients and the public.


For a free Consultation, please visit the contact us page  to let us know  your research needs. We will be happy to give you a quote. No project is too small. Again, we would like to partner with you, to help YOU discover your roots.
