Leaving A Single, Childfree Legacy with Patricia Smith Griffin

Your legacy is more than just your last name. Genealogist Patricia Smith Griffin shows us how
1

Patricia Smith Griffin is a historian, genealogist, podcaster, and the keeper of a rich family history. She is descended from early Ohio settler Charity Davis Ceasar Broady and was told the story of her family’s legacy, passed down through the generations by the women in her family, since the time she was born. To honor her family and keep the stories alive, Patricia founded Charity’s Children Project, a non-profit organization committed to establishing a multicultural center in Dayton, Ohio, and wrote and voiced The Legacy of Charity’s Children, a short story podcast series that illuminates the generational journey of one of Dayton’s oldest African American families.

Patricia joins me to show us how single women can leave a legacy for themselves by telling us the stories of her unmarried (and married late in life) relatives and how their accomplishments shaped her family. She also gives us some tips on how you can find the spinsters in your family tree.
