Find your African-American Ancestry

When it comes to researching African-American heritage, most family historians must overcome barriers arising from the institution of slavery. Families could be separated and slaves weren't usually named in official documents, including census records prior to emancipation, among other obstacles. But while finding documentation might be a challenge, it's one that can be overcome with persistence and the right approach. In addition to basic, standard genealogy practices, your research will include resources and strategies crafted to answer the unique challenges of African-American research. If you have African-American ancestry, this live, online class will provide you with the tools you need to find their records and build your family tree.

In this hour-long presentation, you'll learn the essential resources for digging deep into your African-American family history with an emphasis on those than can be found online. You'll come away with several strategies for overcoming obstacles and breaking down brick walls.
