Regina Burch Spencer Named Manager of the Adoption Forum

AfriGeneas is pleased to announce that Regina Burch Spencer has been named manager of the Adoption Forum replacing Wilma Hartley.

Regina was raised in Lake and Dyer Counties in western Tennessee. She spent most of her childhood in the rural area of Ridgely, Tennessee. She started her genealogical research about ten years ago. She realized one day that there was so much that she did not know about her family.

Regina has written a series of stories called “Mile Lane Memories” that appeared in the Lake County Banner in Tiptonville, TN. Mile Lane was the road that she lived on in Ridgely, TN. A handful of stories turned into twenty two stories of memories on Mile Lane. Her favorite out of those stories is called “Jessie Mama.” This is a story of her step grandmother who was a powerful woman who taught her much about life and living. The stories go as far back as her two year old memory. She plans to compile these stories into a book.

Her research has found many living family members. Her most memorable finding is finding her dad’s sister. This is what pushed her genealogy from being curious to a passion. Finding and reuniting her Aunt Edna with her dad after 58 years is an experience that is beyond words.

Regina stumbled upon AfriGeneas in the early part of her genealogical research. She started out with very little and with the help of AfriGeneas volunteers, she has been able to gain a lot of information. Although she has not taken any instructional educational courses in genealogy, she has learned from all of her “teachers” at AfriGeneas.

When Regina is not doing genealogy research, she is reading, crocheting or busy with her children’s ministry or drama at church. She currently resides in Maryland with her daughter and husband. She is a graduate of the University of Tennessee Martin. She is a contracting specialist with the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Her genealogy motto is “Building families branch by branch.”
