In honor of Black History Month, Janice Lovelace Ph.D. will discuss what life was like for Free Blacks prior to 1865. This presentation discusses how freedom was obtained pre-Emancipation in British, French and Spanish colonies as well as the new nation of the United States. What work did people do? What were the social and community organizations of Free Blacks? How does the researcher find records about Free Blacks pre-Civil War?
Janice has more than 30 years of experience in genealogical research, and has presented nationally on methodology, DNA and ethnic minority genealogy. She also is the author of the National Genealogical Society's course African American Roots: A Historical Perspective.
