In observance of African-American History Month
Camarillo Public Library and the Ventura County Genealogical Society
present

Kenyatta Berry
of PBS Television’s Genealogy Roadshow
 
1:00-3:30 p.m.
at the
Camarillo Library Community Room
4101 Las Posas Rd, Camarillo CA
 
Ms. Berry’s topics will be:
“21st Century African American Genealogy:
How the Media and Technology are Changing Research"
and

“Finding the Last Master:
Researching your Enslaved Ancestors”

These topics will interest both African-American family historians and the genealogy community at large. Research methodology is greatly enhanced by the recent expansion of technological resources for genealogy research, and many unknown record groups are becoming available to solve genealogical mysteries. Ms. Berry’s second lecture covers little-known slave records that can be used to illuminate the history of ancestors and descendants of slaves.  You may also see how slave records can provide information about ancestors who were slave owners.
