Getting Started in African American Family History Research

Saturday, February 24, 10:00-5:00 p.m. ET

Presented by Cynthia Evans, Jonathan Hill, and Danielle Rose

Want to learn more about your family’s past, but don’t know how to begin? This full-day, virtual seminar will provide you with the first steps in tracing your African American roots. We will look at common challenges and myths, key records and resources, and strategies for making real headway in your research. Our instructors will also share how to utilize and get involved with the 10 Million Names Project, a collaborative endeavor dedicated to recovering the names of the estimated 10 million men, women, and children of African descent who were enslaved in pre- and post-colonial America between the 1500s and 1865.

Registrants may attend all or some of the seminar. All presentations will be recorded and shared with registrants following the live broadcast.
