1870 Brick Wall

"...Everytime that we find a record that positively links a freed person, with a first and last name, to a former slaveholder, we stop right then and update this page."

—Toni Carrier, Lowcountry Africana
NGS Conference, 2011
***
In May 2011, I spent a day, in Charleston, South Carolina, researching Benjamin & Mary (Clark) Boyd, who relocated to Charleston from Fairfield District, in 1793.  For the remainder of the week, I attended the National Genealogy Society (NGS) conference.

Two years later, I finally went through the 600 page+ syllabus. Wishing that I had attended other presentations, I did the next best thing; I ordered tens of audio conference CDs, from JAMB, in Saint Louis, Missouri, which happily arrived yesterday! The first one that I listened to, African American Genealogy: Records in Charleston That Break Through the 1870 Brick Wall, presented by Toni Carrier, was the inspiration for this page.  Thank you Toni!
