2024 Wake County Genealogical Society Virtual Meetings - next - January 23, 2024

Join us for the next Virtual Meeting from WCGS!

Tuesday, Feb 27 @ 6:30pm - Virtual

Topic Roots of Hope: Rediscovering the Legacy of John Hunter
Speaker: 
Ernest Dollar, Director of the City of Raleigh Museum


A chance discovery led to an incredible merging of past and present. While working on an exhibit at Dix Park, Ernest Dollar found record of John Hunter, an enslaved man from the plantation where the State Hospital was later constructed. The genealogical detective work began with Hunter's birth in 1760 and ultimately led to the return of living descendants in 2019. His work was profiled in an award-winning documentary and has reshaped the Park's conversation on its complicated past.
