Re: Generations from Slavery ?
In Response To: Generations from Slavery ? ()
Both my gr-grandfathers from my father's side were former slaves, one was about 13 when slavery ended; the other was 39 years old,at that time. So, on that side, I guess I'm 3rd about generation. On my mother's side, both her maternal and paternal gr-grandfathers, my gr-gr-grandfathers, were former slaves, so I'm 4th generation there. Strangely enough, it was the female ancestors in my family who were free during slavery times.
