This video is excellent and oh so true. Thanks! When I make presentations, I always encourage people to not shy away from African or Native American research-if you learn how to research "peoples of color", it will enhance your research. I typically follow a lot of Tony Burroughs recommendations given in his book on African American research, the basics are the way to go. Once we have those down, all the fancy technology "stuff" just helps. Thanks

Well said, Pat. This is a message that really needs to be heard and assimilated. As always, Elizabeth says it so beautifully - and with class! ;-)
PS: ...think I'll post it to Facebook!

I was delighted to see and want to congratulate Elizabeth Shown-Mills
on the video about "cousinship".
Anyone who has done serious research back more than a couple of
generations knows that family legends are suspect, including Choctaw
(in my case Cherokee) princesses. OTOH, mixed ethnicity is real and
our ancestors interacted on many levels. I remember laughing out
loud when I discovered that my husband's third great grandfather had
witnessed a deed executed by my own 3rd or 4th great grandfather, a
few hundred miles and years before we met and married.
If we keep saying "we are all related" often enough, maybe the
message will eventually stick.
