Black History Month is every month, but we’d like to invite you to a program that encourages you to dig into your genealogy and discover more of your family’s history. Many people think Ancestry.com is limited when it comes to African American genealogy, but as more databases become accessible, Ancestry.com has added them to its catalog of resources. It takes a little bit of time to find where to look but we will give you some guidance on how to navigate Ancestry.com, Familysearch.org, and the National archives to find your African American ancestors.
The workshop is led by Hennepin History Museum’s archivist, Michele Pollard, who has helped museum visitors conduct genealogical research, as well as done a deep dive into her own family’s stories.
