About the Author

Hasker Nelson, Jr. is a retired television Public Affairs Director whose former job included functioning as Producer/Host for the weekly half-hour program, "BLACK MEMO." He founded the program in January, 1974. It aired continuously through the end of December, 1999 on WCPO-TV (Channel 9) in Cincinnati, Ohio. Many believe ‘BLACK MEMO' was the longest continuously running local Black-focus TV program in the country.

During his twenty-six year career at the station, Mr. Nelson also spent three years as a reporter. He says that experience, coupled with previous job experience as a Lab Technician, taught him some skills in "information/fact gathering and organizing."

"Genealogy" slowly became a passion as he began delving into his own family histories (both sides) in the mid-1980's. "The more I learned," Mr. Nelson asserts, "the more I felt a spiritual connection to previous generations of individual family members I'd never met. I don't believe that "connectedness feeling" is unique to me. I believe it's waiting for anyone. It's especially important for African-ancestored people in the Western Hemisphere, because most of our families were deliberately disconnected."

Mr. Nelson also conducts interactive "African American Oral History Interviewing" workshops and seminars.

I learned a lot from this little booklet, it could have had several more pages. I was able to get a guideline on how to construct questions to ask older family members.
