Slate River Ramblings


In 2012, Joanne Yeck began blogging the rich history of Buckingham County, Virginia.   Over the years, Slate River Ramblings has become a cross-generational conversation engaging those who appreciate local history, rural living, and historic images.


In 2016, Joanne created a personal, genealogy project at Instagram: A Family Memoir. The collection, told in pictures and very few words, begins with the migration of the large, extended Harris family from Buckingham County to Leon, Iowa.
