From Alameda to Louisiana

>> Saturday, July 23, 2011

On my way to a family reunion in Louisiana, I was able to stop in Lake Charles and visit my oldest (known) relative, Mildred Carriere.

Mildred with my mother, Deborah James. The original art is of my great great great-grandmother Francis Garland.

Mom and her cousin, Alvin, who gave us a ride from Houston.

Mildred Carriere, 98, is my great-grandmother Alma Carriere's first cousin. Mildred was born in 1913 in Lake Charles, LA.

I was recently involved in a major genealogical project with youth in Alameda County. You can read more on the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California blog.
