Genealogist, author, and speaker, Megan Smolenyak post this video below in the AfriGeneas African American Genealogy Community Facebook group the other day and I just had to share with all who haven’t seen it. I think Megan did an awesome job on the research of Pharrell’s ancestors as well as a good job on the production of her video.

This past Thanksgiving I spent it with my mom’s family in Atlanta and Christmas was spent with my dad’s family in Virginia. My dad’s immediate family is significantly smaller than my mom’s, she is one of ten while my dad is one of four. I enjoy being around family, on happier occasions than sad ones. Any who checkout some from Christmas below.
