Michael Nolden Henderson, Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Navy retired, began his genealogy journey almost 30 years ago. Henderson is the author of Got Proof! My Genealogical Journey Through the Use of Documentation, his memoir detailing his discovery of an enslaved ancestor who gained her freedom in Spanish colonial Louisiana in 1779. In 2014, he was awarded finalist in the 50th Georgia Author of the Year Awards from the Georgia Writer’s Association. Henderson is the first and only African American member of the Georgia Society, Sons of the American Revolution. He is also a member of other lineage societies, including the General Society of the War of 1812. He is a lecturer who speaks frequently to groups nationwide, and is the recipient of the 2013 James Dent Walker Award for Excellence in African American Genealogical Research. He is a native of New Orleans, and a graduate of Xavier University.
Tonights show takes on an important Topic; of the historical backdrop in Genealogy. Genealogy is a word used to describe a line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor to you. There are direct ancestors and others on the branch who are blood relatives. For me Genealogy is not only locating ancestors but profiling them through the historical context in which they lived. This is important especially with Native and African Ancestors whose history is mirred with movements they had no control over.

This past Friday my cousin Edwin Temple and I spent sometime conducting genealogy research on the Temple, Vining, Harrell and Richardson Family. On the second floor at the Amite Branch Library you will find a genealogy library and archival room. We spent most of our time looking in old books and looking at photographs.
A couple of years back, a former school teacher named Mrs. Grace Walker Perry donated a photograph album of African American pioneers, educators and other programs can be found in the album.
Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special Edwin Temple for this upcoming discussion on African American Genealogy Research in Amite, Louisiana.
If you are a genealogist or family historian have you thought about what will happen to all your years of research material, family records, photographs and other important documents? Join Host and Genealogist Antoinette Harrell for this upcoming discussion.

Now in thinking about this week's show, I was about to go on and say that, I don't believe that enough is being done to support, advocate and create awareness for disabilities. Disabilities like my own(Spina Bifida) Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Celebal Palsy and so many others. But in thinking and doing some more search, I realize that there are. Walks, fundraisers. People like you and I going out and raising money and awareness for disabilities all scross the "board". The other thing that I was, and in a way still am concerned about is the amount of research that's done to help fight these dsiabilities, these "birth defects". You see reasearch studies posted and shared, but can the majority of the public find them? Let's be hones for a second. Most of us don't know where to look to find studies that have been shared publically. Maybe something should be said or done to make sure that this research, these studies are placed more so out into the open so that everyone can find them easily, without having to "dig around" for it.
We'll talk about this and more. This week. "On-Air".

Don Eckerle of the German Genealogy Group (GGG) and John Martino of the Italian Genealogy Group (IGG) join Jane this morning to talk about the mammoth indexing projects their groups took on when they decided to tackle Long Island records and then New York City vital records and then NARA NYC records and then some more. Don and John will discuss what records they have done, what records they intend to do, and what the differences in their groups' databases are. They will also tell us how they manage their indexing projects with more than 2,000 volunteers. They'll also share interesting stories from their indexing and tell us about unusual records or people that they came across in the records.
In May 2014 Don, John and their GGG partner Bob Boeckle received the National Genealogical Society's Award of Merit in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field of genealogy.
John and Don are pictured with the other New York attendees at the NGS conference in Richmond, Virginia. They are all members and volunteers for the GGG and IGG indexing projects.
Qualitative research is like completing a complex puzzle in which you put all the pieces together to create a picture. However, qualitative research is unique as a puzzle in that the researcher must first collect and analyze the puzzle pieces before putting the picture together. Join me and Dr. Paula Dawidowicz, Research Coordinator for the Ph.D. in Education Program at Walden University, as we discuss some of the ”puzzle pieces" of qualitative research that challenge novice researchers. Research problems vs. social problems, writing researchable questions, alignment of problem, purpose and questions, choosing appropriate methods, using theory effectively, conceptual frameworks versus theoretical frameworks, data collection techniques, data analysis and interpretation, and writing up findings are all topics for discussion in this show. Join us.
If you only know the name of a grandparent, then how do you go back three or four generations to find their slave ancestors?
Konnetta Alexander shares touching stories of finding her slave ancestors going back three and four generations. With inspiration from journal entries of an Antebellum, slave account book written by slaveholder Daniel Graham, the lives of unrelated slaves provides documentation of slave life from which Konnetta uses as her guidebook to find and document slaves. While making national presentations about the life of Matila Graham, house slave, Konnetta tells the story of every house slave! Calling out the last names of her slave ancestors: Clark, Miller, Moorman, Peay, Prince, Quinn and Ramsey. Join in as discoveries unfold in Finding Our Slaves.
With 20+ years of genealogy digging, Konnetta has three projects: researching family, transcribing and making public excerpts of the slave journal, and performing interpretative presentations about the lives of Free Persons of Color and Slaves. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, is an annual participant of MAAGI (Mid-Western African American Genealogy Institute), and member of several historical societies. The focus of Konnetta’s genealogy research is finding, documenting and personalizing slaves, whether family nor not.
