Have you always yearned to learn the answers to questions such as
From what country did my ancestors come from? 
How long have we been in America?
Are there any veterans in my family?
When did the family farm or business begin or end?

If you answered "YES" to any of these should join The Brown Girls Project for an afternoon of fun and findings. This class will present tips and strategies for beginning the process of constructing your family tree. In addition to describing the various records and sources available for finding information, we will help you to understand some basic genealogy terms and tools. 

African American research poses unique challenges. That is why The Brown Girls Project has partnered with Genealogist, Historian and Author Thomas D. Jordan to help you in researching your roots. 
You will be introduced to tips and strategies discovered along the way in researching his ancestors traced in his book, Double Jordan. 
With his guidance and your practice you will become a pro at dissecting and deciphering documents to help you unlock the mysteries of your ancestors.You’ll also learn what resources are available and preferred by him to aid in your research.


All materials will be provided and we will have light snacks and refreshments available.
