If you’re researching African-American ancestors, we’ve got a great deal on our Family Tree University course Finding African-American Ancestors in Newspapers: Research Strategies for Success, with instructor Tim Pinnick.
Thanks to a sponsorship from GenealogyBank, registration in the four-week session starting Feb. 20 is just $39.99 (down from the regular $99.99). So if you’ve been thinking about taking this course, now’s the time.
You can learn more about the class and see the syllabus here. Past students have been surprised at the number of newspapers that have been published in the United States covering African-American communities.
Also check out Tim’s Newspapers forum at Afrigeneas, one of our favorite genealogy websites for those tracing African-American roots.
