Grandma, where are you? Finding the Women in Your Family Tree - Instructor, Janice Sellers, APG - Female relatives can be difficult to trace, but they can be found. This presentation covers resources for tracing the women in your family, including family items, federal and state census records, immigration records, vital records, church records, journals, newspapers, legal and court records, library archives, and manuscript collections.

African American Research Workshop - Instructor, Genealogist Alvis Ward Jr. - This is an ongoing free hands-on research workshop comprised of African Americans, also referred to as Black or Afro-American, or those who harmonize with Sub-Saharan Africa, with ancestry, citizenship, or residency in the United States. The workshop is an interactive exchange of research tools, methods and systems, and discussions necessary for progress at individual levels of family histories and genealogies impacted by the 16th Century removal of Africans to America as slaves. No pre-registration is required. For additional information E-Mail :nextleveldna@gmail.com
