For African Americans, finding ancestors and exploring your heritage can be challenging, in part because so few records have been digitalized. This is changing rapidly. Learn the multitude of FREE research tools you can use from home to find your ancestors. Learn how to write your own personal and family history for your descendants. Receive one-on-one live help and leave the event with a suggested next-steps, research tools & places, helpful hints and web site addresses.
New this year—a program geared for youth ages 12 and up “Your Proud Family–How to Make Your Family History Louder and Prouder”! At this parallel event youth will learn how get things digitized, keep records, collect family stories, and keep their family tree alive.
