  • Uncovering African American Stories

    When: Tuesday, November 18, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    Where: 141 Cambridge St, Boston MA 02114

    Description:

     The lives of African Americans have long been hidden in histories of the northern United States. However, the labor and contributions of African Americans, enslaved and free, are a part of many New England sites. Join Historic New England museum historian Jennifer Pustz as she explores the African American experience across New England from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries through the lens of historic properties.

    Expert genealogist David Allen Lambert discusses the primary and secondary sources available at the New England Historic Genealogical Society for researching African Americans in New England. He highlights how to best utilize materials such as vital records, probates, deeds, and newspapers to further expand your knowledge of African American ancestry. A wide range of sources from family manuscripts to internet resources will give you the clues to further your research and trace your family tree.

    Co-sponsored with Historic New England.
