IAAM Center for Family History: “In Search Of…” with Cherie Passey

In this short video, Cherie Passey (Carolina Girl Genealogy) discussed finding and connecting family – particularly researching enslaved families and the families who enslaved them. She also discussed ways that descendants of the enslaved and their enslavers can work together to rebuild slavery-disrupted family trees.

Healing, responsibilities, and personal emotions that result from research and discoveries, sharing slavery-related records, are also topics covered by Cherie.
