Sponsored by Prince George’s County Council Member, Deni Taveras (District 2) in partnership with the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System, The Prince George’s County Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, and the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center.
This series of workshops will teach participants the fundamentals of African-American historical and genealogical research.

They will show participants how to identify sources, records, and other tools needed to organize and manage research materials.

Where are they? How can one find all these wonderful records that have been described in some of the sessions? The lecturer will provide the name, give the location and tell what kind of information can be found in some of the many institutions that house the different types of historical and genealogical records. Some of them require an actual in-person visit; but most can be accessed through the Internet. Time, rather than distance, may be the only impediment to gathering data from these sources. Repositories can be libraries, archives, courthouses and other government offices.
