Bio

If you send me suggested edits, please also email me with a source for your edit.

I am a family historian, writer, and artist descended from several generations of documented slaveholders going back to the 17th century in Virginia. I'm currently researching and writing about the history and legacy of slavery of my ancestors in southeast Alabama, especially the Lower Chattahoochee Valley area of Alabama and Georgia, and the Mississippi Delta region of southeast Arkansas.

I have found several faraway graves of ancestors via this website and am very grateful for everyone's efforts to help everyone else! I can take photo requests occasionally in the east Tuscaloosa area. In family history research, it is so important to cite our sources for every bit of information (including photos) that we use to build our family tree. Here's a great resource: https://www.evidenceexplained.com/content/evidence-explained-citing-history-sources-artifacts-cyberspace
