Research Road Trip: Magnolia Baptist Church

While I was in Georgia my uncle told me my Great Grandfather Dock Waker was a deacon at the Magnolia Baptist Church, now known as the Magnolia Missionary Baptist Church, my grandmother Clittee Christian Walker also played the piano there. I am hoping before I had back on the road to head home I can look at some of the old church records to validate the oral history. I’ll keep you posted, in the meantime checkout this little video I made on my way to visit Magnolia Missionary Baptist Church.

My Passion

Maya Angelou 

Like many of you, genealogy is my passion. I can not explain how glad I am I stumbled onto it, I can only hope my ancestors are happy with the work that I am doing.
