I had a such a good time at MAAGI (Midwest African American Genealogy Institute) in St. Louis last week. I learned so much in just three day, from organizing my work to the importance on creating an ancestral timeline to learning more about DNA and Genealogy. I really enjoyed being around other genealogists who were eager to learn. The instructors were good and very help even after classes were over, some of the instructors at this years MAAGI were Shelley Murphy (twitter: @familytreegirl), Angela Walton-Raji (blog: http://african-nativeamerican.blogspot.com), Bernice Bennett (blogtalk radio: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/bernicebennett), Nicka Smith (blog: http://www.whoisnickasmith.com) and Judy Russell (website: http://www.legalgenealogist.com) just to name a few. I have already decided to attend next years and I urge other genealogists especially those who are tracing African Americans to attend, I promise you won’t regret it. Visit Maagi-Stl for more information and updates.
