Sierra Leone Heritage Community

About The Community

You can become part of SierraLeoneHeritage.org by joining the Sierra Leone Heritage Facebook Group. This will enable you to post comments, participate in discussions, upload photos and videos, and share your interest in Sierra Leonean culture and heritage with other like-minded people. This digital resource recognises that different people have different knowledges and experiences of cultural traditions, practices, performances, objects and sites. By integrating the social networking features of Facebook into the resource, we hope that SierraLeoneHeritage.org will provide a forum for bringing these differently-situated knowledges together. So, whether you are Sierra Leonean or not, whether an academic or a cultural performer, a carver or a museum curator, a traditional healer or a tourist, you are welcome to join the community, contribute your knowledge, and help us to learn from each other.

The title of your book is one of the most important marketing strategies that you will use. That's why you should be mindful

I understand the sensitive nature of this question, but hope someone can point me to somewhere to find more information. My 4th great grandfather was a missionary in Sierra Leone in the years following the British establishing the colony. I just got some of his letters and he writes that he and his wife adopted 6 children (who had been saved from a slave vessel). He writes about how much he loved the children but none of them went back to Europe when they left the colony about 10 years later. I assume the children were all adults by then. I'm wondering if there is any way to identify these kids? Are there any records or other documents that may help? Maybe not, but I thought it was a question worth asking. Thank you.

Are there any genealogical research centres in Sierra Leone I can contact to narrow down my Mende ancestry to clan?
