Research Note.


Researching the life of Rachel Flowers is more difficult than I initially thought. It is quite a headache, a good, yet frustrating headache. Searching for a person born at the turn of the twentieth century, a black person, a black woman, holds many limitations. I truly hope to find a family member, one of her nieces, nephews, or even son or daughter. Beyond federal documents, I want to know how she felt, how she lived, and her personality. I guess I can only hope right.

  1. What a wonderful blog. I tried researching my own family tree over the years. I know what you’re up against!

  2. Thanks for signing up for my blog. I am an historian and am thrilled to see what you are doing. I find African American history very exciting, partly because people ignored it for so long. good luck. If I can help with ideas or books or as a sounding board, just let me know.

  3. Thanks for liking my page. Just getting started on blogging. I get inspired and want to learn more. Great to see other historians to learn from. I understand about not finding much research. Love bringing little known history to light.
