Bringing Your Story to Life

by Edwina Thomas

Bringing Your Story to Life.

Speaker: Edwina Thomas has been a member of CAGGNI since 2011 and is currently vice president-programs. She started having family reunions after she lost her last grandparent in the 1980s. She took descendant lists of each branch from a cousin. This list grew to include ancestors as well.  Edwina has gone back as far as slavery on her mother’s side and become the family historian by default. While her focus are the states of Alabama and Ohio, she wants to show the migration of her family from the Carolinas through Alabama, Tennessee and Ohio to draw a connection between the Williams, Gordons, Thomases and Browns and tell the story of their lives.
