The GU272 Descendants Association will host an online Genealogy Gathering on, Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 6PM central time. Genealogy gatherings are opportunities for descendants and potential descendants to share information about their connection to the 272 enslaved people sold by the Jesuits of Georgetown University. This is our first online gathering. Thus far we’ve had in person Genealogy Gatherings in Orleans and Ascension Parishes. Coming up in the fall will be our Terrebonne and Ascension Parish gatherings. Tuesday’s online gathering will provide GU272 Descendants Association members and potential descendants an opportunity to learn more about the 1838 sale by the Jesuits of Georgetown University and to share and receive information in an effort to verify their connection to the families involved in the sale. This online meeting is open to GU272 members and non-members but everyone must register to participate. Log-in information will be provided after you complete the online registration or when you register by phone at 225-308-2050.
