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.

City Directories

SAT, 2/6/16 – 2:00-3:30 PM

Hyattsville Library - 6530 Adelphi Rd, Hyattsville, MD 20782

City directories are especially useful for family researchers because they contain information dating back to the early 1800s. Since most states did not begin compiling vital statistics until the twentieth century, these books contain the only verification of age, residence and sometimes marriage for many Americans. Participants will learn where to find them and how to use this valuable genealogical resource.
