An 1867 law allowed that males 21+ years, regardless of skin color, were eligible to vote; extant 1867 voter registrations are invaluable to genealogists. Lists of Qualified Voters were created across the south and beyond. These are the first lists to include those formerly enslaved. Also discussed are later voter laws enacted to combat rampant racist restrictions on voters.
A professional genealogist since 2004. Has researched for the popular TV show Who Do You Think You Are? and appeared on the Bryan Cranston episode. Has authored almost 300 articles for such publications as Internet Genealogy and Your Genealogy Today. Currently editor of the North Carolina Genealogical Society journal. Has spoken nationally about the availability and richness of southern records, genealogical research techniques and tips, under-utilized resource collections, etc.
A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
