Making the Invisible Visible

Our multicultural Genealogy Zoomboree was a hit! Four nationally known experts showed us how to track seemingly invisible records and people.

This was a three-day, live and online event. Registration for the video recordings of one, two, three or all four speakers is online only.

The Zoom link for the recording(s) and the handouts will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

The videos will be available for viewing up to and including May 15th.
