by Athina Ramphal
 
Many genealogist express the wish that they had started on their family history journey sooner. This program is by someone who has started that journey the way many of us wish we had.
 
Athina Ramphal attended the Finding Your Roots -- Seedlings program founded by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and it helped her realize a passion she never knew she had for genealogy. She discovered that students, like her, do not know they have a passion for genealogy or have nowhere to express it. It is a growing field that needs immediate attention. It has many benefits in most occupations and it is everywhere but hidden to younger generations. After the show, Athina founded a Genealogy Club while she was in the 9th grade at her high school. Come learn more about the Genealogy Club's mission to spread genealogy to students and show them that the industry has a lot of benefits when used in many different fields.

The Russell-Matson Family and Descendants: An African American Wisconsin Family History
by Carol J. Calvin, MS, ED
 
The serendipity of viewing a photo album leads to a half century journey of discovery.
 
Like many African Americans, Carol knew very little about her family history. She began researching her maternal family after viewing a cousin's photo album in Chicago. Her cousin identified her maternal great great grandparents and their children to her. They had settled in southwest Wisconsin and were farmers there. This exciting discovery led Carol on a 45 year genealogical journey to learn more abou her maternal ancestors and to share her findings with her family and community.
