- Finding Your Roots: A Guide to African American Genealogy - Tuesday, February 21, 5:30-6:30pm. Americans with enslaved people in their family trees have unique challenges when it comes to tracing their family trees. Because enslaved people were considered property, they were prohibited from owning land, property, businesses, reading, writing, attending school, and voting. It’s the legal records of these activities on which we base much of our genealogical research. Without them, what do we do? In this workshop we will learn about different sources for researching the records that do exist, ways to access them, and how to start compiling records of your own.

Make sure to bring your charger and know your passwords if you have any.
