Marian Pierre-Louis, principal researcher for Fieldstone Historic Research, will be the speaker at the Society's monthly meeting on Wednesday, April 14, 2009. Her topic will be "Early African-American Communities in New England", which will include research on Cape Cod and the Islands.
A genealogical researcher, instructor, lecturer and writer, Marian is involved in many aspects of family history from genealogy to oral history, identifying old photographs and house histories. Her focus is on Southern New England research, which includes the states of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Particular research interests include early (1700-1850) African Americans in New England.
