PGS Class on African-American Genealogy

On 10 November, Harriett Thompkins, shown in the picture here, presented our first class dealing with African-American genealogy. Harriett talked not only about the unique challenges faced by African-American family researchers, but also about the common aspects of research faced by all genealogists.

Attendees came from Tampa as well as local communities, and they represented PGS members and non-members alike.

The presentation was well-received and will be scheduled again in the Spring. So if you missed it this time around, be sure and check the schedule in the future so you can add it to your calendar.
