FREEDOM WAS NOT ENOUGH – A Genealogical Workshop

It was not until 1865 when slavery ended in United States enslaved African Americans could legally marry.  Until this time, many enslaved people entered relationships that they treated like marriage and had children.  Nuclear families were often time broken up to live on different plantations.  Post slavery, freedom posed a problem in making sure enslaved African Americans could unite with their families.  We then must question, was freedom enough to save the family units for years to come?

Join Jamestown Foundation for a genealogical workshop with presentations on the effects of slavery on family lineage, as well as how to start tracing the lines of family descendant, resources, and DNA interpretation.

The workshop will take place on  at Francis Marion University’s Chapman Auditorium. Registration will start at 8 AM.  Cost of the workshop is $40 and includes a continental breakfast and lunch.
