African American Genealogical Research

The Austin History Center African American Community Archives presents the African American Genealogical Research Workshop Institute for Black History Month. Join the African American Community Archivist for two genealogy sessions at the Carver Branch Library in East Austin. If you are interested in learning about how to search for your family ancestors from the past or present, the genealogy institute will introduce novice and intermediate researchers to necessary steps for finding their ancestors.

The first session, February 12, is specifically for novice researchers, and the second session, February 19, is designated for intermediate or advanced researchers. All attendees must RSVP to participate and indicate which session: kymberly.keeton@austintexas.gov.

The Austin History Center’s African American Community Archives will present a series of Black History Month public programs including our first forum about issues in the black community, genealogy sessions, scholarly presentations, and exhibitions held during the month of February. All are free and open to the public and will be held at the Austin History Center, Austin Public Library, and other city cultural arts complexes throughout Austin, Texas.
