NPT’s second Finding Your Roots workshop will be a virtual discussion led by Taneya Y. Koonce, president of the Nashville chapter of Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society. For this workshop, participants will be asked to identify one object or document through which to investigate and share their own family history. The workshop will also include tips on finding resources, organizing and preserving family artifacts, and finding clues from objects that may lead to further investigations into personal ancestries.
Participants may also opt to receive a mailed packet of charts and documents designed for those beginning their genealogy for the first time.
This discussion may be recorded and posted to NPT’s Learning Media page, website and/or social media.
