Have you ever traced your family through a maze of intriguing documents and discovered politicians, land owners, socialites, and key decision makers in the community? What about family members who are both free people of color and white?
Bernice Bennett and Natonne Elaine Kemp welcome Genealogist and Family Historian Gwendolyn Smith Olson for an exciting discussion of her genealogy research of Free People of Color from Baltimore to Louisiana.
In keeping with the vision of researching and sharing “hidden” information and stories about the communities of south Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, Family Historian Gwenn Olson offer stories of the people and places outside of New Orleans. Her discussion of the Carr/Kelso Family is an effort to provide stories and pictures that can possibly offer new information to those researching their family histories.
