Genealogy: It’s Not Greek to Me

In this program, Rozlyn Kelly will discuss how to conduct genealogical research, starting with oral histories and how to locate documentation to support, explain, or further those oral histories. She will present a case study of an interracial couple, telling the story of the pioneering travels of a Canadian-born free Black person who serves in the U.S. Civil War and marries a German immigrant.

This program is co-sponsored by the Western Michigan Genealogical Society.
