African-American Genealogy Workshop



Historic records that clarify African-American genealogical connections are often vague, incomplete, or missing altogether, posing complications and obstacles for researchers. From 10:00 a.m. - noon, genealogy experts will be on hand for personal assistance on research projects. At noon John Baker, historian and author of The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom, will discuss the journey that led him to find his own ancestors, who were enslaved in Robertson County, Tennessee.
