Staff at the State Archives will present three topics of instruction that may help researchers who are searching for African-American ancestors who lived prior to the end of the American Civil War (pre-1865). The three part workshop will include a session on laws concerning slaves and free persons of color, a methodology on investigating a slave narrative and records to explore when searching for information about African-Americans before the end of slavery (1865).
The workshop includes a catered lunch.
