S03 E17: Black Railroad Workers in the Jim Crow Era

In this episode, we welcome Mr. Mack, a retired railroad worker, to the show to talk about Black railroad workers in the Jim Crow Era.

We regularly comment on how intertwined genealogy and history are on Genealogy Adventures. Understanding the history our families’ lives played out against goes some way towards turning them from names into three-dimensional people whose life experiences we can relate to. This episode might be light on genealogy…but rich in historical information.


We are available for your genealogy research project!

Whether you’re new to genealogy, don’t have the time to pursue your own research, or have a stubborn brick wall you just can’t break through: you can hire one of our experienced research team who will happily work with you to achieve your genealogy research goals. As the first Black-owned genealogy research company, our African American genealogists excel at African American genealogy! As African Americans with caucasian ancestors – our genealogists are just as experienced in researching European-descended American ancestry.

The short video below covers what we do and how we do it:
