FAMILY GENEALOGY

DID YOU KNOW?   All Genealogy research should begin with YOU!  Next, go to your parents, older siblings and relatives, and then your older neighbors.  Document it!

ABOUT THE LEAD GENEALOGIST -- Dr. Jackie S. Henderson

 

  Dr. Jackie S. Henderson began her work in Genealogy in January 2001 after volunteering to host her Family's 13th Annual Haywood-Sherman Family Reunion in Stone Mountain Georgia in July 2002. 

  The documentation for the Haywood-Sherman Family History was originally written in hand-written narrative format by William R. Sherman Sr. (Dr. Henderson's late father).   This same information was later typed and distributed at the 1st Family Reunion in 1981 by the late William R. Sherman Jr.

   In 2001, this information was placed in a database by Dr. Jackie S. Henderson.  It was later updated with much more detailed Family Genealogy information,  and then placed in a Family Tree format.  Later, the Family Tree was printed on a large   3" x  7" outdoor vinyl banner and displayed at the Family Reunion in 2002.  

   This personal family Genealogy search led to a desire to work with other families in their Genealogy search, and thus the introduction of YOUR FAMILY RESEARCH. 

    Dr. Henderson is a member of the Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society Inc. (AAHGS), national and metro Atlanta chapter.  

   Dr. Henderson holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Georgia State University, a Master of Divinity from Emory University’s Candler School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Jacksonville Theological Seminary of Jacksonville FL.
