African American Genalogy Workshop: Reviewing Freedmen's Bank Records

Apr 27, 2024 - Apr 27, 2024 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Virtual Event

Have you ever found a record while conducting genealogy research that stopped you in your tracks? Join the African American Program and genealogist Lisa Crawley for a genealogical investigation and analyzation into the multiple layers of information from Freedmen’s Bank Records.

The records, which uncover the history of a formerly enslaved spinner and her family in Eastern North Carolina during the era of the Civil War, can be used to explore the technique of “reverse genealogy” and how this fascinating story was brought into the 21st century.

A genealogy reference assistant in the Robert F. Smith Explore Your Family History Center at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Crawley will help attendees discover how they can trace their lineage, discover their ancestors, and preserve their family history.

The African American Genealogy Workshop is presented in partnership with the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society.
