    Discover Your Family History with
    Bernice Bennett –
    Award-Winning Author and Genealogist!

    My New Book – Black Homesteaders of the South – is Here! The book provides little-known evidence that Black families living in the South acquired land under the Homestead Act of 1862. Many others beyond the forty-nine families identified in the book also owned land. I encourage others to use this book as a model to identify other Black homesteaders from this period.

    Conducting genealogical research alone can be overwhelming. Let me help you get started. You will get the coaching you need:

    • to conduct a good oral history;
    • strategies on how to map out your genealogy research plan; and
    • resources to collect and analyze findings.

    With my help, tracing your family roots is easier than you may think.

    What will I do for you?

    • Retrieve records located at the National Archives I and II in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
    • Facilitate your small and large group meetings.
    • Offer motivational keynote addresses, meeting moderation and presentations targeting your specific needs.
