Are You Related to Royals?

I’m totally excited for the Royal Wedding.  And despite being a Revolutionary War buff, I plan to be among the 1-2 billion people across the globe who will happily tune in to watch on April 29th.

It’s a great genealogical

journey!

Pearl will play with ideas of mixed marriage: interracial ancestry and William and Kate’s Royal + “commoner” marriage.  And there will be free food provided by Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery!

This is the first program in a new series Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations, a series of public conversations about mixed-heritage families, race, ethnicity, culture, and identity, infused with historical perspective.

Thanks to funding provided by New York Council for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities!

The New York Times featured this event on Friday, April 22!  Also here.
