Bucks County Genealogical Society Program

"African American Genealogy" presented by Dean Henry

Place: David Library of the American Revolution, 1201 River Road, Washington Crossing, PA

This presentation will cover the common research ‘brick wall’ challenging many African American descendants of formerly enslaved ancestors, and ways to overcome it. Conversely, we will cover why African American family researchers sometimes are surprised to learn that their story isn’t the standard “Roots” story.”

The first major part is describing the typical narrative…captured in Africa, brought to a southeastern state through the Transatlantic Slave Trade to a plantation, and free by1865, and how to research prior to the 1870 census (if that is the narrative). The second major part talks about a couple of other scenarios (manumitted before emancipation, and living “free”; and prior bondage in the Caribbean before transportation). I will also mention a scenario from my wife’s family…sold in Connecticut, and living free in Vermont in the early 19th century.
Come early at 9:30 to enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks while socializing with like-minded genealogists, attend our Beginner’s Corner, or browse our store!

Historical Society of Pennsylvania

"Researching Family in Pennsylvania"

Place: Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA

Join us for a week-long genealogy course designed to explore the records and repositories available for researching ancestors in Pennsylvania. Hear from nationally-recognized instructors, explore the significance of the Keystone State as a hub for immigration, and access records only available onsite at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

This is a complete “how-to” course, training you to use the resources available at HSP and elsewhere to uncover your family’s story! The curriculum takes participants through three primary questions:

• What records are available?
• Where are the records located?
• How can you decipher what you discover?

By the end of this course, you'll have the answers!

This course is designed for all levels, from beginners to experienced family historians. Enrollment will be limited to 40 persons on a first come, first served basis. No Refunds can be issued after June 28, 2019.
