Virtual seminar
Award-winning author, genealogist, talk show host and storyteller, Bernice Bennett will be our speaker. Bennett is the recipient of the first Ida B. Wells Service Award from the Sons and Daughters of the U.S. Middle Passages for her dedication to broadcast the stories about enslaved and indentured ancestors of African descent. Her book, “Tracing Their Steps” is the winner of the 2021 New Generation Indie Book Award and the Phillis Wheatley Award. Bennett is a nationally recognized speaker, having presented at conferences such as the National Genealogical Society, Midwest African American Genealogy Institute, RootsTech, Afro-American Historical and Genealogy Society, the International Black Genealogy Summit, and more.

Join Bernice and MGC for these exciting topics.
  1. USCT Civil War Widows Pension Records Tell the Story will discuss the anatomy of a Civil War Widows Pension file and several examples to illustrate the value of using these records.
  2. Black Homesteaders at the Crossroad of Freedom will answer these questions: Who were the homesteaders? What is the homestead act of 1862? What are the eligibility requirements? What is the application process? and What can you find in the land entry papers?
  3. Writing and Telling Your Story -Do you have a story to tell and don’t know how to write or tell it? This session will explore how you can turn your genealogical research into a compelling and engaging family story.
  4. Follow the Witnesses will show how following witnesses on documents can reveal the community history.
