A passionate genealogist and history educator, Christopher, has always been interested in the stories of his ancestors and the experiences of minorities in America. At the age of 12, he began exploring his ancestry and learned how to conduct genealogical research. As he studied various nationalities, his fascination with family history deepened, and he became dedicated to serving others who were interested in learning about their own roots.
In January of 2018, Christopher founded Unearthing Your Roots, Inc., a company that provides professional genealogical services to clients. His dedication to uncovering family history has been fueled by his own ancestral roots across Louisiana, Mississippi, Maryland, and Virginia.
Christopher is a recent graduate of Clark Atlanta University and is currently traveling around the world to bring your the fullest truth to your ancestors complex history. He plans to apply for his PhD in History this fall.
In addition to his passion for genealogy and history, Christopher is also an accomplished jazz musician. He ties into his Louisiana heritage by performing with jazz ensembles in the Metro-Atlanta area during his free time. When he's not playing music, Christopher enjoys traveling and spending time with loved ones.
With a deep understanding of his own family's history and a passion for sharing that knowledge with others, Christopher Smothers is dedicated to helping people discover their own roots and connect with their family histories.
