Refresher Course:  Researching Great-Great-Grandfather Benjamin Veazie
Main Speaker:  Recreating a Slave Population:  Rutherford County Tennessee - Ted Gostin
Genealogists researching African-American families often hit a wall with the 1870 census, are unable to trace families back into the slavery period.  While there were slave schedules in censuses prior to 1870, the slaves were not listed by name, but only by sex, age and sometimes color.  This lecture reviews the construction of a slave database for Rutherford County, TN, using deeds, probate records and other sources, and shows how that slave database could be used to give names to the unnamed people in slave schedules prior to 1870.
