"RESEARCHING MY FAMILY HISTORY IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA"
BRANDYWINE HUNDRED LIBRARY (1300 Foulk Road, Wilmington, Delaware 19803)
Presenter: ROSALYN GREEN, Research Consultant for Delaware Afro-American Historical/ Genealogical Society.
Rosalyn Green is a retired research scientist and teacher who is now applying her research and teaching skills to looking for her ancestors and helping others learn how to look for theirs. She has been researching her family genealogy for over four years. Her presentation will cover three generations of her family living in Richmond, Virginia during the second half of the Nineteenth century and early part of the twentieth century. She will show you how she used genealogical and historical records to answer specific questions she encountered during her research.
In October, my book will be the basis of a DEAAGS presentation on how slave catching and kidnapping affected the lives of African Americans in Delaware and Pennsylvania. The exact date that Stealing Freedom along the Mason-Dixon Line: Thomas McCreary, the Notorious Slave Catcher from Maryland will be available is not yet set, but I hope to have copies with me at the time of the presentation. I will have more to add about this presentation and the release of my book in later posts.
