20, 19, 18… Countdown to Genealogy Success, Part 2: African American Resources

July 24, 2012       7 PM – 8:30 PM


Joseph Carvalho III, author and former Executive Director of the Springfield Museums, has recently revised his Black Families in Hampden County, Massachusetts 1650-1865, published in 2011 by NEHGS. The book presents genealogical, bio­graphical, and historical information about Afri­can American individuals and families who lived in the area now known as Hampden County in western Massachusetts. For this session Carvalho will discuss the range of 17th, 18th, and 19th-century genealogical research sources including useful repositories, publications, government documents, and databases. Because this topic is so broad, attendees are encouraged to bring specific questions, so that Mr. Carvalho can tailor his presentation to the particular research interests and needs of those attending.  Cost for the three part series is $25; session cost is $10, WHS members $9. 860-688-3813 for more information.
