- Minnesota Genealogical Society 2021 Virtual North Star Conference 30 September – 2 October. 6 plenaries with main speaker D. Joshua Taylor and 23 breakout sessions plus handouts! I am doing two of the breakout sessions.
- Ancestry has unveiled the world’s largest digitized and searchable collection of Freedmen’s Bureau and Freedman’s Bank records to date, with more than 3.5 million records available for everyone to search for free at www.Ancestry.com/Freedmens. “The addition of these significant records can be instrumental in helping descendants of previously enslaved people in the U.S. make additional discoveries about their families by offering a path to trace ancestors prior to 1870. This collection can enable meaningful family history breakthroughs because it is likely the first time newly freed African Americans would appear in records after Emancipation.”
- My speaking calendar has been updated. I’m just a bit busy in September with many hours of virtual presentations. Please join me and the great organizations that have asked me to speak.
