Martin Luther King Jr. ~ SERVICE

After the passing of my Mom, Geraldine BARWICK on August 5th to Alzheimer’s Disease, I returned online to the genealogy research so dear to my heart.

I also created the African American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry Research Community via Facebook, a collaborative work-group where we work 1:1 with up to 200 researchers of slave ancestry descent. AAGSAR’s primary goals: 1.) acclimate African American researchers to the smart technology tools capable of advancing their research, 2.) share core best practices and techniques to hone research skills and 3.) support researchers in migrating their family history online.

It’s been a FUN albeit AMAZINGLY CHALLENGING 3.5 months! Here’s just a “taste” of what’s brewing in our virtual kitchen!:)

As you can see there’s MUCH cooking in our kitchen — though not the feast you traditionally find served-up on this day! Nonetheless our meal is hearty, soul-fortifying and enough to keep us fed for many weeks to come!:)

I’ve always been a techie, community advocate and genealogist — these traits are as much my DNA as the WINGFIELD and BARWICK clans!:)

But we should be living every day thankfully with gratitude for life and another opportunity to get this damn thing right! We are creating our personal legacies EVERY DAY.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it eloquently…

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?

If you can’t quickly and easily answer that question, reach out — TODAY.

Y’all know where to find us!:)
