    This was an excellent webinar! I always learn so much from Nicka Smith. She always teaches us the what, where and how to use record sets that are so vitally important for African American genealogy.

    Nicka’s presentation was incredibly informative and easy to understand. I now know that doing research on enslaved people in Louisiana is very unique. And now knowing about Dr. Midlo-Hall’s work and getting direction about my specific research will make all the difference. I am so glad Nicka took my question because I would’ve never known about looking outside of the Louisiana to find my ancestors.
