African-American Genealogy Workshop

African-American Genealogy Workshop

Historic records that clarify African-American genealogical connections are often vague, incomplete, or missing altogether, posing complications and obstacles for researchers. From 10:00 a.m. - noon, genealogy experts will be on hand for personal assistance on research projects. Virginia Watson of the Friends of Tennessee State Library and Archives will be on hand from 10:00 am - noon to guide researchers through their own projects. At noon John Baker, historian and author of The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom, will discuss the journey that led him to find his own ancestors, who were enslaved in Robertson County, Tennessee.

This event will be FREE to the public and will be held at the Cabin by the Spring.
