COGS Event - African American Genealogy Research - Beyond the Basic Sources

Picture of a woman and her ancestor

Saturday, February 17, 2018, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Multipurpose Room A.

One of the biggest challenges in African American genealogy research is finding information about formerly enslaved persons before the 1870 U.S. federal census. This was the first census following emancipation and the first census that recorded former slaves by name. This presentation will provide a sample of sources which can help turn this research challenge into a fulfilling adventure.
