About History Investigator

History Investigator is a website that focuses on the rich historical heritage of the Piedmont region of Virginia – and beyond (often well beyond): particularly those fascinating but lesser known stories depicting the trials and triumphs of the often voiceless hearts and souls of America.

Our founder – Zann Nelson – specializes in African American historical and genealogical research with a goal to enlighten and engage and wherever possible to be a factor in the unification with lost ancestors.

With this website, she seeks to create an online destination for cataloging & publishing many of her past, present and future historical investigations.
