Tracing African-American Ancestry Prior to 1865:
Breaking Through "The Brick Wall"


In recognition of Black History Month, the Louisa County Historical Society is hosting an advanced research workshop on African-American genealogy on Saturday, February 15th from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Sargeant Museum. If you’ve been researching your African-American family roots but have hit “the brick wall” of 1870, this workshop is for you. Our former director, Elaine Taylor, will focus on what records and resources are available for breaking through that barrier using Louisa County records as examples. There is no charge for this workshop, but registration is required. Call (540) 967-5975 to register. 
All materials provided; Ages 14 and older; 4 Min/10 Max

Saturday, February 15th  - 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m @ Sargeant Museum
