Daughters of the Governor
I just finished watching your documentary with Wanda Sykes and John Legend. Being an African American, I’m fascinated by genealogy. I have been able to trace my mother’s family back to 1865 in Barnswell, South Carolina with some help from an online geneologist who helped me discovered that my family could have been owned by the Governor of South Carolina at the time. This did not sound right…as there are no family stories recounting this…My family remained in Barnswell, South Carolina and then Allendale South Carolina after Barnswell was burned to the ground during the Civil War…Until my grandmother came to NYC in the 1940′s. I would love to have some professional help to bring truth to our story. Can you point me in the right direction? I have been on ancestory.com and I have hit a wall…Help.
