GenFriends-The Black Homesteaders Project


Bernice Bennette and Shelley Murphey join me and Melissa Barker to talk about the Black Homestead Project. Bernice tells us what the project is about and how to search for your ancestors' homestead records and share them on the website. Shelley shares her family's homestead stories. 

Watch as we learn how these records help understand our family stories and how the project is helping to gather and preserve the stories of Black Homesteaders. 

Do you have ancestors who applied for homesteading? We'd love to hear from you!
