Many African Americans desire to research their family's lineage. Many find that research difficult and as such, must rely on family stories passed down from generation to generation. This research began from family stories some of which was confirmed by research. This paper chronicles the Belford/Jackson family for six generations living in Northern Florida. This research was completed over the course of two semesters.
