Clayton Library Presents -  

The 1870 Community-Cluster: Gateway to Your Ancestor’s Enslavement

Researching enslaved African American ancestry is an extremely challenging and daunting task. Descendants of enslaved ancestors encounter the proverbial brick wall of 1870, which may seem impenetrable. Author and genealogist Franklin Smith will demonstrate how the 1870 community-cluster is the gateway to not only identifying the slaveholder but to providing information about their history of enslavement. For intermediate to advanced researchers.
