S05 E07: Introducing The Sons and Daughters of the United States Middle Passage Society with Dr. Evelyn McDowell

African American genealogy has grown, matured, and entered the mainstream of American life since emancipation. Few things say “mainstream American genealogy” quite like lineage societies. African Americans have lineage societies to celebrate our ancestry and our ancestors’ contributions to building the United States. Dr. Evelyn McDowell joined the show to talk about a special African American lineage society and the work that it does: The Sons and Daughters of the United States Middle Passage Society.

Founded in 2011, it is a society for descendants of individuals enslaved in English colonial America and the United States of America from 1619-1865. It is dedicated to preserving the memory of our freed and enslaved ancestors.
