Join host Bernice Bennett and family historian Gwendolyn Olson for a fascinating discussion of her genealogical journey to find her Harris ancestors enslaved in North Carolina and beyond. She traces her Harris family roots back to her 4x great grandmother Lydia 'Roberts' who was born around 1770. She is successful in locating her by collaborating with the great great great grand daughter of the descendant of the slave owner. This family journey also uncovers wonderful surprises!
