Lemon Project Genealogical Research Roundtable – Monthly Meeting

The Lemon Project Genealogical Research Roundtable is an extension of the Genealogy Show & Tell sessions started as part of our first Sankofa Summer Workshop Series. The roundtable is a collaboration of genealogists and family historians at all levels of expertise. The session will focus on slavery and post-emancipation eras. Of course, genealogical research leads us down many paths and places, but ties to Virginia are the focus of this group.

The roundtable meets monthly with the goals to:

• Discuss genealogical research challenges and find solutions

• Assist new family historians on how to get started

• Share resources and research findings

The Lemon Project Genealogy Initiative focuses on finding descendants of people enslaved by William & Mary. During this session, we hope to connect with people who have ties to W&M pre- and post-Emancipation.

The meeting will be informal, and everyone will be able to contribute. The meeting will be held virtually via Zoom, with potential in-person research sessions in the future.
