Program Description

Event Details

Family History Hunters is an informal meeting for genealogists of all levels of experience. Led by genealogy specialist Joan Wood, along with Archives volunteer Janet Daniels, the group meets monthly to discuss tips and strategies for researching family history. Each meeting begins with a short introduction to a particular topic followed by a discussion where members are welcome to talk about their research successes and challenges. Whether you are a veteran researcher, or just beginning your family history, please join us.

This month's focus: African American research can be challenge especially before 1870 and emancipation.  Brenda Nelson will present a case study to the Family History Hunters group about how she was able to break down the brick wall and find her husband’s ancestors.  Come meet with us as she shares her knowledge.
