Linked Descendants: African American Genealogy Prior to 1870



Get directions


Calendar event image

Join us for a workshop with Sharon Leslie Morgan, renowned genealogist and founder of Our Black Ancestry, as we delve into African American ancestry before abolition. 

Researching African American families prior to the 1870 Census is a challenge that may be overcome by finding linked descendants – or the white families who enslaved most of the Black population. 

Learn new research techniques and use genealogy as a tool for confronting slavery and heal. 

Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants 1 hour before the program starts.
