Join us for this Webinar with Dr. Shelley Murphy, DM
The 1870 is the first census after the emancipation and is the first time African-Americans’names versus tick marks and genders are identified. It is key for African-Americans’ genealogical research to get to 1870. If researchers can make it there, the chances are great that they can locate their family before Reconstruction — which might take them to the enslaved family ancestors.
Dr. Shelley Murphy, a native of Michigan, now residing in the Charlottesville, Virginia area, has been an avid genealogist for nearly 30 years! She also holds a Masters in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix. She works as a Director of Program Services with Piedmont Housing Alliance, routinely educating citizens on family financial literacy and the benefits of home ownership. In addition, she presents Genealogy 101 workshops and conducts team building and development training for Evolution Consulting Group. Recently Dr. Murphy designed and implemented Track 1- Methods & Strategies at the first annual Midwester African-American Genealogy Institute (MAAGI) in St. Louis, Missouri.
