The cover of the book, "The Thompson Family: Untold Stories from the Past."

Next month we kick off a monthly series on African American genealogy. Each session features a different topic to help South Carolinians trace their family history. On Wednesday, May 4, author Dr. Walter Curry, Jr. hosts “Writing Family History- The Narrative Inquiry Approach” and details how to use stories and accounts to analyze a family’s history. Archivist Steven D. Tuttle hosts “Sources for African American Genealogical Research at the SC Department of Archives and History” on June 8. Beginners will find the session on July 6 with Genealogist Robin R. Foster helpful as she explores websites, Facebook groups, and genealogy-related documents. The series continues into the fall, join us!
