Adrian M. Foushee has been researching his family for 12 years. He is a resident of Pasadena, originally from Washington, D.C. His families’ home states are North and South Carolina. One summer night in 1977, after the airing of Roots, his brother asked their maternal grandmother about their ancestors. The following morning his brother drew out a crude pedigree chart. The genealogy bug bit Adrian and he could not be cured. Adrian is a member of several genealogical societies.
