Black Family History Day, February 11, 2012

The African American Genealogical Society of Northern California (AAGSNC) and the Oakland Family History Center will host another Black Family History Day in celebration of Black History Month.  The event will take place Saturday, February 11, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Oakland Regional Family History Center, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA 94602.   It is free and open to the public.  Feel free to bring a family member or a friend with you!  Everyone is welcome, but AAGSNC is requesting that attendees register online beforehand.

Volunteer genealogists (including me) will again be available to answer genealogy questions and provide individual research assistance.  A free DNA test kit will be given to each attendee.  I was told that a speaker will give a presentation about DNA twice during the afternoon, but there is no information on the AAGSNC site about that.  Perhaps it will be posted soon.

For more information, call (877) 884-2843 or send a message.
