S02 E08: African American Genealogy Research with Bernice Bennett

Join Brian and Donya as we welcome a special guest, Bernice Bennett, to kick off our Black History month broadcast series. Ms. Bennett talked about the importance of incorporating historical research in genealogical research, working with DNA, different record sets to research enslaved people, mapping, and the importance of creating an African American genealogy research strategy to help achieve research goals and aims. We also talked about her popular BlogTalk radio show.

Ms. Bennett is a genealogist, author, producer, and host of the popular Research at the National Archives and Beyond! BlogTalkRadio show. Her guests include nationally recognized historians, genealogists, book authors, and family researchers.

Ms. Bennett is also the recipient of the first Ida B. Wells Service Award from the Sons and Daughters of the U.S. Middle Passages for her dedication to broadcast the stories about enslaved and indentured ancestors of African descent.
