Terri Ward

The Heart of The Front Porch Genealogist


Hi! I'm Terri!

I am a storyteller, researcher, and chronicler of Coastal Georgia history and a lineage liberator focused upon African American Genealogy. My ancestral quest began with childhood memories and a desire to RIGHT the record, as well as WRITE the record.

With a B.A. in Foreign Language and a passion for cultural history, I've built a vast library of case studies, databases, and presentations. My expertise lies in providing a framework for effective genealogical research, overcoming obstacles, and fostering collaboration. Join me as we delve into the stories of our ancestors, untangling the threads that tie us to history and each other.
