Hey Kinfolks!


Thanks for subscribing to the KinConnector Webpage.


Here’s a little introduction to who we are, what we do, how we do it, and why now more than it’s time for us to support you on your journey to learn about your family history.



Who


KinConnector is a growing platform and service designed to help people with marginalized histories learn about their family’s history in a safe and equitable way. Founded in 2018 by lead genealogist/historian Alexander Trapps-Chabala as a direct response to the lack of cultural sensitivity and awareness in the genealogy field, it is the only platform of its kind designed with the unique experiences people of color in mind. KinConnector aims to combine family history with social justice in order to help individuals and their families heal via their ancestry.


What


KinConnector provides a variety of services that focuses on the family histories of each of our users. Our services include but aren't limited to:

  • Standard Comprehensive Family History

  • DNA Test Analysis

  • Lost Relative Locator

  • Document Retrieval

  • Family Reunion and Event Organizing


How


Using expert-level historical and genealogical approaches to our research, we source our information from a variety of subscription-based and free online databases as well as on-site research at courthouses, archives, libraries, and other record-holding repositories. KinConnector is designed to keep all of the information we find secure and safe for our users and their families.


Our goal is to make family histories accessible to everyone. Your history is your birthright, yet they have been commodified and stripped from us for too long. So much can be drawn from our ancestor’s lives. How they survived, loved, fought, thrived, and even failed are all tools for us to get free right now. In the current climate of hatred, fear and state-sanctioned violence against Black and Trans lives, now is the time to reach deep into our cellular memory and highlight the moments that got us here.


Let’s begin this movement together by filling out this form to get started:
