After talking to Dana who left me a message, here is information that may help you. Her family London (Loundon & Amy Jankins (Jenkins) were on the Dover Hall Plantation in Glenn County GA, with my ancestors Peter & Eliza Farrow. I have their names in two of the documents in my book Keeper of the Fire: An Igbo Metalsmith From Awka".

Today I went to meet a group of seniors. We did a craft Project and had lunch together. I will be doing an oral history project with this group for the next month. We will document their lives and ancestry.

They will each have a book of their history & photos. We will combine all of their stories and the photos & memories of the group's members that have died in the last 4 years.

It is fascinating that this group laughs together, cries together and know each other in a way not shared by their spouses or children.

Looking for a good name for the session. All I can come up with is "Finding My Roots". I am open to any suggestions.
