Migration Patterns: An Alternative for Locating African American Origins

February 12 @ 10AM EDT: Join us on Zoom from 10 am to noon as Lamar E DeLoatch, President of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogy Society, Piedmont-Triad Chapter, provides a fascinating look into African American genealogical research and movement throughout the United States. His presentation explores a number of consequential migrations that helped reshape culture, politics, and economic structures, including from Africa to the transatlantic crossing of enslaved Africans, as well as the Great Migrations and the Southern Migration in the United States. For people of African descent, their ancestors could have been a part of any of these migrations, and in pursuit of family history, the clues are often found far from home. Mr. DeLoatch adds, “If you want to know where you came from, this will be a great workshop for you to attend.”
