African American woman from Library of Congress photo archivesGenealogy can be challenging under the best of circumstances. However, few areas of American genealogical research pose as much of a challenge as the search for African-American families.

Joe Williams, President of the Milwaukee African-American Genealogical Society, looks to help out with that issue by exploring strategies for discovering your African-American ancestors in various periods of history.

He will cover topics such as where and how to begin, how to interview family and family friends and what to look for in your home, how to search the census, death records, indexes, how to search transition records from slavery to freedom, how to search records for slaves, and other indexes and records that will be useful to the search.

Registration is encouraged. Please call 414-286-3098 to do so.

This session is being offered at Martin Luther King Library on Saturdays, October 3 & 24, November 7 & 28, December 5 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
