Very encouraged after a polite email, folks at Black History Album contacted me, agreeing to take Aunt Lena’s Rensler image down from the Black History Album Tumblr! They asked if I’d ever consider featuring my family images for visibility to a broader audience and I explained, it’s not about visibility – it’s about restoring & preserving family.

I did suggest that Black History Album consider joining our Facebook African-American genealogy & Slave Ancestry research group and allow some of our researchers to assist in giving the MANY Ancestors that populate the BHA site their names and stories back!

Our Ancestors were more than eye-candy. They deserve more from us than a PIN, TWEET or POST.
