New Journal Article: ‘Roots: Tracing the Family History of James McCune and Malvina Barnett Smith, 1783-1937’

Dear friends of Ordinary Philosophy,

Though I’ve largely suspended writing original pieces for OP while I’m pursuing my doctorate degree at the University of Edinburgh – I’m in my final year – I’ve by no means stopped writing. My three-part article ‘Roots: Tracing the Family History of James McCune and Malvina Barnett Smith, 1783-1937’ has recently been published in the Journal of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society. It presents much of my original research into the family history of James McCune Smith and his wife, Malvina Barnett. If you want to know much more about the Smith-Barnett family than has ever been published before, the issue of the Journal which contains it is available at Amazon.

I hope you find it of interest!

Amy

P.S. – I’m also mentioned in an excellent article about McCune Smith which Bryan Greene recently wrote for the Smithsonian Magazine. Hurray! – AC
