About Who is Nicka Smith



Hi! My name is Nicka Sewell-Smith. Teaching and mentoring people in genealogy and family history is literally my life's purpose.

What makes me a great researcher? My degree in communications, work in medical staff credentialing, and plain old nosiness. My own mother has nicknamed me "the private eye." I pretty much won't stop at anything to track down my own ancestors to gain the true knowledge about their lives and to add to, or correct, the historical narrative. 

The world of genealogy and family history isn't very diverse when it comes to education and overall representation. That's why I started BlackProGen LIVE, a web series that directly addresses these issues. Patreon allows me the ability to take things a step further by giving me the flexibility and funds to curate content for viewers who want more than what can be provided in a twice monthly show.

I want to get as much content out into the world as possible to help everyone connect with their ancestors. I especially want those who descend from people of color to know it's possible for them to trace their ancestors and that their lives didn't begin and end with their enslavement.

Want my official bio? Take a look here.

Goals
50 - reached! patrons
"When I reach 50 patrons, I’ll be able to teach a live monthly webinar for patrons on all tiers to watch as it happens and top-tier patrons having replay access.”
