Timbuctoo in New Jersey was founded by free African Americans in 1826. My ancestors settled in Timbuctoo in 1829. Learn how free African Americans established their own community, decades before the Civil War, including an AME Zion Church, schools, and an infamous battle to victoriously fight off slave catchers who came to kidnap one of their own. Also learn how to use internet resources to search your own family history, and learn about the lessons of DNA testing. Bring your questions, and any experiences to share.
