For what reason did you start genealogy research?
After watching the documentary Traces of the Trade (about the DeWolf family's history as slave traders) last year, I became interested in knowing more about my Heyward ancestors, who were major rice planters and slave holders in the South Carolina Lowcountry. I also became connected with Coming to the Table, which is an organization dedicated to bringing together the descendants of slaves with the descendants of slave owners. I am a reference librarian at The Seattle Public Library, and I have the good fortune to work side by side with two expert genealogy librarians.
