Black in Time: Clues to discovering family history to be revealed at 2015 Miami Book Fair
Three genealogists will speak Nov. 21 at this year’s Miami Book Fair International
The panel will discuss “In Search of Our Roots: Genealogy and the African Diaspora”
Their focus is African-American and African-Caribbean people and their family histories
If you want excitement, mystery and surprise look no further. It is not a video game and or on YouTube. According to three genealogists — photographer and visual documentarian Marvin Elliott Ellis; preservationist Sonia Jacobs Dow and author Melvin Collier — it’s discovering your own family history that can reveal your joy of heritage.
Panelists Ellis, Dow and Collier will present a discussion, “In Search of Our Roots: Genealogy and the African Diaspora,” 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus, 300 NE Second St., Room 803, Building 8, third floor. The focus is African-American and African-Caribbean people, their genealogies and family histories.
