This past October I took a trip with most of my mom’s siblings to Bromley, Baldwin County, Alabama. In an earlier blog post I posted pictures of them going to the Westview Cemetery,(Click Here). The seven minute video shows of two of my mom’s order brothers visiting the homestead of their grandfather Dock Walker Sr.

While at MAAGI (Midwest African American Genealogical Institute), acclaimed genealogist Angela Walton-Raji (http://african-nativeamerican.blogspot.com and http://mappingthefreedmensbureau.com) discussed with us how important maps are in genealogy. I decided to do something a little creative and put the names and birth years of my grandfather, his siblings and parents on a map of Alabama.

In 2010 my mom, aunt and I traveled down to their birthplace and the hometown of Dock Walker (my great grandfather). Bromley, which is located in Baldwin County, Alabama and is in close proximity to Bay Minette, Fairhope, Spanish Fort, and Stapleton. Here is a little footage of my mother and aunt visiting their old neighborhood and trying to remember where things were 50 something years ago. Hopefully when I down their later this month I can get some more footage and pictures of Bromley.
