Welcome to Under the Tree – Podcast for AA Genealogists & Historians

Hello to all. My name is Meredith Williams.

I’d like to introduce you to a new podcast called Under the Tree that will debut February 28, 2006. This podcast will feature genealogy research from an African-American perspective.

Most African-Americans have the unique distinction of being descendants of slaves. As a result, the genealogy process and the dynamics of that process can be quite daunting. For those of you who saw the program by Henry Louis Gates – African American Lives – on your local public broadcasting station, you get an idea of what can happen to a person once they really know where they came from.

Some of the specific subjects we’ll be covering are:

  • 60 and over interviews – individuals who, in their lifetime, may have known slaves or are¬†immediate descendants of slaves
  • Interviews with genealogy/history scholars
  • Planning a family reunion
  • African American Church Records
  • Graves
  • The Disgruntled Family Member
  • DNA Research
  • Finding Slave Owners to Find Your Family
  • Family Memorabilia
  • African-American Genealogical Historical Society
  • Book Reviews

If there are subjects that you would like emphasized, please contact me via email. I’d love to hear from you.
