Thanks to All for an Incredible 20th Anniversary Celebration!

I am absolutely thrilled that we had such a wonderful time together on Saturday, March 18th at the Burlington Marriott in celebration of the 20thAnniversary of the New England Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc.

Thanks to our speakers, sponsors, donors, advertisers, exhibitors, re-enactors, attendees, the Anniversary Committee and hotel staff for such a great day! It couldn’t have been any better than…

  • Bob Bellinger’s djembe drums calling us to order.
  • Stacie Clayton leading us in song.
  • Christopher Child’s engaging presentation on DNA.
  • Beverly Morgan-Welch’s overview and highlights of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
  • Interacting with Shirley Carter, the re-enactor of Liza Rich, a laundress from Worcester, and with Charles Price, the Lexington Minuteman re-enactor of Prince Estabrook.
  • Sharing a delicious buffet with family, friends, fellow genealogists and historians.
  • Visiting exhibitors who shared cultural wares, books, and historical /genealogical information.
  • Remembering those who have joined the ancestral chapter.
  • Raffles of FIVE HUGE baskets and other items.

It was indeed a day to remember. Thanks to all for your participation!
