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.
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.

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.
