|Colleen Fitzpatrick, Ph. D., author of
Forensic Genealogy available through her website
Colleen explains that by "using the forensic investigation techniques
presented in Forensic Genealogy you will:
- make unconventional discoveries from surprising sources
- gain an understanding of how your ancestors lived
- develop fascinating insights into your family history
Forensic Genealogy will give you a sense of coming from a long line
of real people who are not just names on a page."
This week Myrt explains the

of her BLOG. Just what are BLOGs anyway?
LINKS WE MENTION
Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley: African Princess, Florida Slave, Plantation
Slaveowner by Daniel L. Schafer. University Press of Florida:
March 2003. ISBN: 0813026164.
The American Library Association reports "...Schafer traces the history of
Anna Madgigine Jai from her homeland of Senegal, where she was captured at
about 13 years of age in 1806 and sold to Zephaniah Kingsley, a maritime
merchant, slave trader, and later an abolitionist. Kingsley eventually married
Anna, made her manager of his plantation, and fathered four children with her.
Anna was an independent, enterprising woman, who managed the plantation for 25
years until expanding U.S. territory threatened race relations, the family's
cohesion, and inheritance rights." Vanessa Bush Copyright ©

The title came to my attention because Schafer is the featured speaker
tomorrow morning at the Florida Heritage House Museum at Manatee Community
College here in Bradenton, Florida.
