Black and White: Researching Ancestors in Liberty County
January 28, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
A Liberty County slaveowner’s descendant’s search to find her ancestors led her to create a website documenting the names of African Americans in Liberty County antebellum records, TheyHadNames.net. Stacy Ashmore Cole will talk about how to find your own ancestors (black and white) in Liberty County, what records still exist and how to find them online, and the all-too-human stories these records have revealed. Free and open to the public — all are welcome!
