Liv started blogging to preserve her family’s history for future generations. She writes the purpose of her blog is to “share my research process and have future generations of my family know that slavery is not a shame on us; our ancestors were some of the most creative and enduring people.” Some surnames that she is researching include: Taylor, Chapple, Newsom, Smith, Moten, Blanton, Green, Bailey, Routt, Allen, and Perry.
