About this webinar

Pre-civil war churches show the relationship between Masters and their slaves. Enslaved people attended Church with their owners and they were recorded beside their owners. Some of the enslaved individuals even got married in their Master’s church. This lecture will show you how to identify the Mother’s church and to locate records that might include your ancestors.

    The presenter had a wealth of research expertise she shared about how to find the church that slave ancestors may have attended. But, as important, she shared the importance of really understanding the community in which the church exists, and the feelings of emotion you get when you find the “aha” records. I loved this presentation.

    Outstanding Facilitator and Presenter. So glad that this particularly topic was addressed. This would further my research in U.S. African American church/denomination records as well as Slave migration in the U.S.
