Presented by the North Carolina Genealogical Society
An invaluable resource to Southern and African American researchers, encompasses business and personal papers from numerous slave-holding families of the South. Decades of genealogical history, 1st account documents surface to struggling personal accounts of “familial” entanglements. The collection also includes cited instances of the enslaved named and perhaps inheriting property to the counted unnamed and sold into inheritances.
Dallas Public Library Associate and Owner of Black Genesis Genealogical Consulting Company, Ari Wilkin’s presentation will demonstrate the breadth of the collection, how to navigate and apply the records to personal research.
