"Six Phases of African-American Genealogy"

"The Six Phases of African-American Genealogy" is the topic for a class at the Indiana Historical Society, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, from 10 a.m. to noon 21 May.

Genealogist Tony Burroughs (pictured), who will lead the class, has identified six distinct phases of research he considers to be the building blocks of African-American genealogy research. This program illustrates an overview of these phases, pointing out methods and sources for each, and progresses from beginning to more advanced research.

Burroughs taught genealogy at Chicago State University for 15 years. He is
the author of Black Roots: A Beginner’s Guide to Tracing the African American Family Tree.

Cost for the class is $10. Admission to the Indiana Experience that day is complimentary for class attendees, who are also invited to a 1:30 p.m. screening of the new WFYI documentary Freedom Riders in the Basile Theater.

For more information or to register for the class, go online or call 317:232-1882.
