Reconstructing Communities Using Genealogical Resources

by Ari Wilkins

Recreating communities can provide rich and insightful details about an ancestor’s life and surroundings. This lecture will demonstrate ways to combine data from census records, Sanborn maps and city directories.

She worked with Dr. James Rose for many years on his final project Generations: The WPA Ex-Slave Narrative Database. She is the owner of the genealogical consulting company, Black Genesis, and also works as a contributor for Proquest’s African American Heritage database. A library associate at Dallas Public Library since 2007, Ari has presented topics at national and state genealogy conferences.
