July 24, 2012 7
PM – 8:30 PM
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.
