For those of you who do not know, NGS presenter and genealogist, Bernice Bennett, shares her expertise on the BlogTalkRadio Show, Nurturing Our Roots with Host, Antoinette Harrell. I had the privilege of meeting Bernice in person, and look forward to the great genealogical resources she will continue to share on upcoming episodes of Nurturing Our Roots. She is truly a great lady.
I was very captivated by everything Bernice shared with me in when we met. You can tell by my faraway look that my mind was churning. I have to also say that it is such a great privilege for me to meet an African American woman who shares the same interests and knows of the person struggles of our ancestors and the difficulties we face in documenting them. Bernice has researched in two of the same states where I am also researching, Louisiana and South Carolina.
Please enjoy the Afrigeneas YouTube Video from NGS 2011 where Bernice shares a little about tracing the homestead records of African Americans living in Livingston Parish, LA:
