Using Online Historical Black Newspapers for Genealogical Research

with Janice Sellers

Many historical black and abolitionist newspapers are available online, with more being added. Most are on subscription sites, and some are free. This class gives an overview of the roles of black newspapers, what is online and where it is, suggests access strategies, and shows sample search results.

This class is limited to 30 participants and is one of the free benefits for CGS members. Non-members fee is $20.00 (non-refundable) and can be applied towards a CGS membership the day of the class.

 Pre-registration is required. 

Registration confirmations will be sent to the first 30 participants who register. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Walk-ins will not be admitted.
