Genealogy & Instagram: Share Local History (Part Two)

I’m beginning a new series here on Genealogy Girl Talks! I want to share with you how to use Instagram for your Family History & Genealogy. Last week I wrote about using Instagram as a Microblogging platform. You can read that post HERE.

Genealogy & Instagram: Share Local History from GenealogyGirlTalks.com

Today I want to focus on sharing local history photographs. It is a great way to share your family photographs and mix in some local history for those who are not from your area, moved away, or want to learn more.

Slave Name Roll Project: Releasing Daniel, Edd, Frank, Ginny, Hannah, Henry, Mann, Rhoda

Today I am contributing to the Slave Name Roll Project. I am releasing the names of the slaves of Shelah Gillenwater (1795 - 1857), my 4th great grandfather, from Scott County, Virginia. The names I am releasing are: Daniel, Edd, Frank, Ginny, Hannah, Henry, Mann, & Rhoda.

I am attempting to help their descendants locate them. Many times these records are tucked away in family history stories, books, and records. It is my hope that these records help someone locate their ancestors. I hope this helps others with their genealogy and family history research, too.
