Event Details


Are you interested in looking into your family roots, but don’t know where to start?

 

Experienced genealogist Wilhelmena Kelly will lead workshop attendees through the basic steps of what you need to start your search including essential materials, and key things to look for both online and offline. 

Ms. Kelly specializes in tracing the roots of Americans with African ancestry, as well as techniques for anyone searching for their Revolutionary War Patriot ancestry.


Wilhelmena Kelly is the author of the books, Bedford Stuyvesant and Crown Heights and Weeksville. She sits on the boards of the African Atlantic Genealogical Society, Manhattan's Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Association, and the Erasmus Hall Alumni Association as Chair of the 1787 Academy Building Preservation Committee.  Ms Kelly is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and has served as Regent of the Manhattan Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), as well as Regent and Organizer of the new Increase Carpenter Chapter in Queens - one of the first DAR chapters founded by a woman of color.

This event is presented in collaboration with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and The New York Genealogy & Biographical Society (NYG&B).
