Today, I suggest you read Gisèle Pineau's Frencn novelMes quatre femmes between historical memory, genealogy and literature.
For once, I'm talking about the background of the profession and an ambitious project of Manioc.org that was very close to my heart: a database "Slavery in Martinique".
A reading of the slave registry by the African ancestral tradition... a book to reconstruct a genealogy with slave ancestors and rebuild the link with Africa.
Today, I will talk to you about strategies that people of colour have put in place to keep free and enslaved members of the same family united despite the legal constraints of the slavery and colonial system.
The registers of military recruitment indicate the identity and service records of recruits, but imagine my surprise when I found one of the few records with a photograph!
Many of you want to know more about your family's history, but it's not always easy to know where to start your genealogy. If you read French, I propose to you today to dwell on a genealogical research guide, published by the Territorial Archives of Martinique, available online and which deserves to be better known.
