Slave Genealogy 101
Where have you been gangsta? When I was unable to go to RootsTech because money fell through I felt my career in genealogy was over. I gave up on my foundation and I felt that nothing I could do would repair my rep. But then I began thinking of why I did Genealogy in the first place, it was to find my ancestors, the slave ancestors.
I gave a presentation in the Second Life Virtual Genealogy Society this past month on slave genealogy and I got a TON of resources from other members and I think that people liked what I presented and put together. So today I want to share with you the powerpoint slides I did for the SLVGS absolutely free.
Why give something away free?
Because I never got into genealogy to make tons of cash. I would like to make a living on it but not get rich. And I hope that by sharing a little bit of what I know that others can find their slave ancestors.
My plans for next week.
So next week I will go into what the people at the SLVGS told me that is helping me break through a brick wall on my father’s ancestral line. If you have not checked them out before, I suggest you go peep them out here. Now it is a society purely on a virtual game called Second Life. But if you have a simple computer you can attend a meeting absolutely free and learn tons from absolutely phenomenal speakers that they have each month. Cost of membership is just around five bucks.
My ancestors were slaves and that is a very negative past. But the sacrifices they made, dealing with a cruel and inhumane society who sold them off like cattle inspires me to do better and to try and succeed in life.
I have connected with my ancestors and I also want to thank airtable for helping me organize my genealogy and I’m working on a project that I think will be OFF the hook! So keep tuned here next week ladies and gents, the Genealogy gangster is BACK!
