Midwestern Roots Conference 2017

This year’s Midwestern Roots Conference hosted by the Indiana Historical Society was very exciting. There were over 400 attendees and some amazing presenters. The staff and volunteers did a wonderful job of making sure everything went smoothly.

I want to personally thank all of the people who attended my session this afternoon. I really enjoyed the questions and research stories. A group of members from the The Afro-American Genealogical and Historical Society of Chicago are doing some exciting work indexing a treasure trove of information regarding African-Americans in Kentucky. I can’t wait to learn more about this project.

I am a part-time blogger and a full time observer of people and culture. I have been researching my family history for over 20 years. I previously served as President and President-Elect (Vice-President) of the Indiana African American Genealogy Group (IAAGG). I am currently the Central District Director of the Indiana Genealogical Society. I’ve conducted genealogy lectures and training's for corporate organizations and family history centers. I have researched my maternal and paternal sides going back 7 generations. With all that work, there is still more to discover. My genealogical goals for 2018 are to submit to libraries and history centers, family history books covering several of my family lines. I am available for consultations and speaking engagements.
