    Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research Presents -  

    In Their Own Words: Genealogy in the Slave Narratives

    Uncovering the genealogy of the formerly enslaved can be challenging, but sometimes the information is left in first-hand accounts, commonly known as "Slave Narratives.” From books to projects set up to learn about life during slavery, researchers can find an abundance of genealogical information about enslaved families, their owners, and their communities – straight from the mouths of the Ancestors. Presented by guest speaker Renate Y. Sanders.

    Genealogy Face2Face - Presented by Clayton Library Friends

    This is a weekly roundtable discussion for Clayton Library Friends members and the general public related to genealogy research. 

    Topic: "You Can Do More Than Google Your Ancestors!” with Mitch Clendenning

    The word Google is more than a name or a website. It's become a verb. It's something you do to find whatever answer you're seeking. Whether it's the address to the nearest coffee bar or the name of that movie you watched last week, you can always Google it, and some type of useful information will turn up. Over the years, Google has added other services, such as email, chat, document creation and storage, just to name a few. Many of the services offered by Google can be used to uncover, record and even share your family history. Find out how creating a personal Google account gives you access to this wide array of online services, and how to use them to turbo-boost your family history research. It all starts with a Gmail account.

    Mitch Clendening is a Senior Library Service Specialist with the Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research. He has been with the Houston Public Library system since early 2017, but his roots in family history go much deeper. Intrigued by a folder of incomplete family group sheets, Mitch began the job of filling in the blanks left by his great-grandfather. This, of course, led to more names and more questions. Fast-forward 35 years, and Mitch is still filling in the blanks on a much larger family tree. Along the way, he has also followed an interest in technology, and how to use it in the search for his ancestors.
