African American Genealogical Society of Northern California and the Oakland Regional Family History Center are working together to present an open house to celebrate black genealogy, culture, and tradition in honor of Black History Month. The open house will take place on Sunday, February 20, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. at the Oakland Regional Family History Center, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA 94602. It is free and open to the public.
Writer and historian Antoinette Broussard, author of African American Celebrations and Holiday Traditions, will be a featured speaker at 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. in the Visitors’ Center theater, upstairs from the Family History Center. Volunteer genealogists (including me) will be available to answer genealogy questions and provide individual research assistance.
To receive a free consultation for a four-generation ancestry chart and for further information, call (877) 884-2843.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
