Most readers of this blog are familiar with my writing partner and friend Sharon Leslie Morgan. Together we are writing Gather at the Table which will be published by Beacon Press in 2012.

One particular area of expertise of Sharon’s is her focus on genealogical research for African American people. Having researched her own family history for the past three decades, she shares information and services to help others explore and appreciate African American family history on her website Our Black Ancestry. She is now sharing her expertise in a new, 12-part blog series at Geni, the website that is in the process of building the definitive, world-wide, family tree.

I encourage my friends to read the first installment of the series here and add your comment to Geni and Sharon about what you think!
