Please join Lowcountry Africana for a very special seminar at the South Carolina Historical Society, “Unearthing Treasures: Tracing Your African American Ancestors at the South Carolina Historical Society” on Saturday, November 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
What’s special about this seminar is that seminar content will be customized to meet attendees’ research interests and research experience. We will also work with registrants ahead of the seminar, to identify records at the South Carolina Historical Society that may be helpful for their research.
We will spend the morning learning how to decipher meaning from plantation journals, maps, plats and photographs. After lunch, the remainder of the seminar will be spent conducting hands-on archival research with assistance from seminar leaders and archivists.
We are excited to be able to offer such a quality research experience in a free seminar. We hope you will join us to explore the stellar collections at the South Carolina Historical Society!
The seminar is FREE. Lunch is $10. Space is limited to 30 participants so please reserve now! To register, please call Virginia Ellison at 843-723-3225 ext. 11.
