African American Genealogy Workshop

May 15, 2021 - May 15, 2021 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Virtual Event by Heinz History Center

How do genealogists locate family members who were involved in some of the most tragic and traumatic attacks upon Black communities in America?

From genocide on slave plantations through the Civil War to devastating attacks during the early 20th century, African Americans have been victims of racial violence by white Americans that resulted in thousands of missing persons. These tragic episodes mark a stain on the American familial landscape and challenge genealogists in their efforts to reconstruct family histories.

During this virtual African American Genealogy Workshop, participants will learn about the history of these episodes and how family records can be resurrected from tragedy.
