In Memoriam: Sandra Taliaferro

Sandra Taliaferro

Sandra Taliaferro

We’ve received word from various sources including the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society – Metro Atlanta Chapter, that genealogist, blogger and GeneaBloggers member Sandra Taliaferro has passed away.

Sandra’s blog – I Never Knew My Father – was not only Sandra’s personal blog but a resource for African-American genealogy as well as a joy to read. Her contributions to the genealogy community will be missed.

You can read more about Sandra and her work as a genealogist and a blogger here. In addition, read our interview with Sandra in the “May I Introduce To You” series back in 2009 here. Please remember her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. May our dearest Sandra Taliaferro please rest in peace among the Ancestors.
    She will continue to be with us in Spirit!

    Peace & Blessings,
    “Guided by the Ancestors”

  2. San was an amazing story teller, keen genealogy researcher and a loving friend. She lived beyond her disability with grace, a wicked sense of humor and an indomitable spirit. May she be at peace… free now to roam the Heavens on her own terms. 🙂

  3. Sandra would illuminate when she spoke about ancestry stuff. SHE encourage all of us to dig a little deeper. A true researcher never gives up. Sandra never gave up. Every hint peaked her desire to go deeper… Rest my friend.

  4. I will miss my sweet cousin in law. We met through searching for my husbands slave ancestors and found those slaves stayed near each inter-marrying. What a wonderful world God has made..through the horror of the present day…we are one made whole by our love for each other. I miss your beauty almost to much, Sandra.
