Introducing the GU272

Presented by Meaghan E. H. Siekman, Genealogist of the Newbury Street Press
In 1838, Georgetown University sold 272 enslaved men, women, and children to plantations in Louisiana. Thousands of their descendants are alive today. American Ancestors has partnered with the GU272 Memory Project which seeks to document the stories, family history, and legacy of these individuals and their descendants. Join American Ancestors expert, Meaghan Siekman, to learn about GU272 genealogical research and our new website that features a searchable database, oral histories of the descendants, and research tools for GU272 descendants and their families.
