An Introduction to African-American Genealogy

From 1565 to 1790, Africans comprised over a third of the roughly one million newcomers to what would become the United States. With little exception, these nearly 360,000 men, women, and children crossed in bondage. Centuries of local and federal laws related to the livelihood of black Americans have created a complex paper trail of genealogical resources. This class aims to provide introductory historical context and recommend basic research methods in the pursuit of African-American family history.

When A Life Becomes Myth

Genealogist Dr. Daniel Hubbard will talk about the reconstruction of a life. An odd and dramatic family tale showed a life slowly being converted to myth over generations. Using genealogy, history, and even weather records to reconstruct what seems to have happened, revealed a life that was not so far from the storyline of a myth from the very beginning. In the end, it has come full circle from story to research to storytelling.

Family Stories:  Writing Workshop

Sometimes you just a need a nudge or prompt to get the words flowing! That's what we've discovered in previous sessions.

Though held online, the format of this virtual workshop will be essentially the same as one's we've held in person in previous years. We'll have a brief introduction to the topic followed by a choice of family or personal history writing prompts and a 10 minute free writing period on scratch paper or computer that gets creative juices flowing. Short enough to keep perfectionism at bay but long enough to dash out a quick draft of something that's been hiding deep in your brain!

We'll then take turns sharing our paragraphs with the group if desired. Then we'll do one or two more rounds as time allows with more prompts, more writing, more sharing and more fun!

The more the merrier, so invite your friends to register too!

This event will be held virtually and registration is required. Your registration confirmation email will include the Zoom access information.
