Church Family Tree
Hello my AfriGeneas Family,
I recently worked on a project for my church. One part of the project was to make a family tree for our church. Attached is our Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church Family Tree. On today, our church celebrated 88 years. We've had three Pastors within those 88 years.
Our church family tree represents the names of our current church members. Another part of the project was to interview church members 80 and over and make a video of it. 9 seniors decided to participate and it was an awesome experience. A group of our children interviewed them asking them a series of questions.
We found out so much about them. We learned real birth names, the 9 represented NC, VA, IL, FL, MD and SC. Our children were amazed that they were actually taking to folks born in 1917, 1925, 1923, 1921 and so on. Some even had some college education. I also provided all 9 of them with information that I found on them based on their parents' names.
All of this will now become a part of our church history. Oh, and some of the church families made prayer banners that represented their families. (I'll try to post our family prayer banner in a separate post).
Now, I plan to take time from any future projects to concentrate on the 1940 census.
Thanks for allowing me to share.
