In this month's Library Genealogy Club, we present: The Sons & Daughters of the United States Middle Passage (SDUSMP).This is a lineage society for descendants of individuals enslaved in English colonial America and the United States of America from 1619-1865. It is dedicated to preserving the memory of freed and enslaved ancestors. This program will explain what is the SDUSMP, how to apply for membership in it, how to find enslaved ancestors, and why it is important to remember them.
