film Crew in New Orleans
In a few days, the PBS program - History Detectives will air a segment titled "The Galvez Papers" August 30-31, 2010. The mystery and history behind my Louisiana Creole slave ancestor and 4th generation Great Grandmother named Agnes MATHIEU will be revealed.
Since discovering Agnes nearly eight years ago much has been found out about her life. However, a rather interesting aspect discovered concerning her manumission (freedom papers) captured the attention of the show's producers.
This past April I visited New Orleans to participate in the filming of the segment. The portion that I will be featured in took about 5 hours to film. I hope this story will inspire others as they seek answers to their ancestral mysteries. Here are a few links about what has happened recently with my research. Enjoy
