Genealogy 101: Diversity, Ethnicity and Complexity in African-American Genealogy

On Thursday evening, June 6, the Sequoia Genealogical Society and Dr. Joy Browne will present the program “Diversity, Ethnicity and Complexity in African-American Genealogy”. Her program will include information on the Freedmen’s Bureau Project and appropriate ways to use its data. Dr. Browne is a credentialed scholar and on the faculty at Fresno State University, Fresno. Her interdisciplinary doctoral research included a study of the impact of migration on ex-slaves in the antebellum South. Her professional expertise and direct involvement in genealogical research make her well qualified to help our community’s African-American families in their genealogical research efforts.  Dr. Browne also serves the Friends of Allensworth as a historian and grant writer.

The Sequoia Genealogical Society meets in the Olympic Room, at the Tulare Public Library, 475 M Street (M Street and Cross Avenue), in Tulare. Meetings are at 6:30, the first Thursday evening, of each month. There is no cost to attend and the public is welcomed. Parking at the library is free with handicapped parking available.
