Black Family History Lab

March 15 - March 17

Back for 2024, this three-day Black Family History Lab is the latest edition of “Memories Matter,” reimagined as a weekend-long community history gathering. The Lab invites local residents to connect with family history experts on how to best save family treasures (i.e. photographs, letters, books, quilts, stories, and more), sit for professional family portraits, attend genealogy and oral history workshops, and find out what community groups are doing to tell local stories—all free of charge. An event by the Getting Word African American Oral History Project in collaboration with The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center and over twenty local history organizations and preservation specialists.
