Second successful research trip to Liberia

We just returned from a second highly successful research trip to Monrovia and Buchanan, Liberia, where we positively identified two families directly descended from the Chattahoochee Valley emigrants and got leads for several more. Further, we continued to build local connections with Liberian government officials, institutions, and businesspersons who will help ensure success for our upcoming production trip.
