Lowcountry Africana Welcomes Luckie Daniels - Coordinator of Georgia Records

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was received over the holiday weekend by our friends at Lowcountry Africana. Please address all inquiries to Toni Carrier, toni@lowcountryafricana.com

Lowcountry Africana (www.lowcountryafricana.net ), a free website dedicated to records of African American genealogy and history in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, is honored to welcome Ms. Luckie Daniels as Coordinator of Georgia Records. In her new role at Lowcountry Africana, Ms. Daniels will coordinate the growth of the Georgia document collection, share information on resources for Georgia research, and offer insights on research methods to help keep your Georgia genealogical research moving forward. She also brings a deep knowledge of Web-based technology and social networking tools to the Lowcountry Africana team.

Dona Amechia "Luckie" Daniels is a descendant of emancipated slaves from Washington-Wilkes Georgia. Shortly after the passing of her Maternal Grandmother, Fannie Louella Jackson Barwick, Luckie began her journey to preserve the memory of her family history by establishing OurGeorgiaRoots.com in 1997. She recently established OurAlabamaRoots.com to preserve the legacy of her Alabama ancestors. By day, a Sr. IT Project Manager, Luckie is committed to genealogy preservation and utilizing all the benefits modern day technology affords in this effort.

Luckie has established her OurGeorgiaRoots collection in the Lowcountry Africana/Afriquest database. We are now adding her initial content, hundreds of images of Wilkes County, Georgia estate inventories. You can view her new collection at http://www.werelate.org/dlib/handle/1298.

Lowcountry Africana is pleased to welcome Luckie Daniels and the many ways in which her voice, vision and expertise will strengthen the Lowcountry Africana team.
