Finding Your Roots African American Genealogy Research

In this presentation, Sandra Williams Bush will cover how to begin family history research, how to find basic genealogy records, and how to start your family tree.

Sandra Williams Bush, a retired public Librarian, has been researching her family history for 20 years. She is a member of several genealogy and historical societies including her local Buffalo NY groups, the Buffalo Genealogical Society of the African Diaspora (BGSAD) and the Afro-American Historical Association of the Niagara Frontier. Some of her researched family stories are included in the book Kindred Stories: Genealogy and Family Histories by BGSAD members; she also has an essay in the book Black Homesteaders of the South compiled by Bernice Alexander Bennett. In 2023 Sandra was accepted into the lineage society, Sons and Daughters of the United States Middle Passage. Sandra chronicles her family history research in her blog: Ancestor Callings: Georgia and Mississippi Roots.

Admission is free, and RSVP is encouraged to help us plan for the event by letting us know how many people to expect.
