Late Breaking: Early Bird Registration has been extended through Sunday, September 12, 2021.
The Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) annual conference is October 13-16 and again will be virtual. The early registration deadline is Tuesday, August 31, 2021.
Experienced genealogists, historians, and academicians will discover new research techniques, updated and expanded databases, and build investigation skills during the four-day conference. For beginners, the AAHGS conference is a great place to become inspired with tens of millions of other family historians and genealogists who have made genealogy one of the most popular uses of the internet and digital resources.
“The AAHGS conference this year aims to enhance those experiences with research tips and tools, while tying family history into historical perspectives for birthing broader and brighter narratives of family history,” says AAHGS National President Baba Gene Stephenson.
The National Black Memorabilia, Fine Art, and Craft Show has postponed its annual event for the second year in a row. Lindsey Johnson, producer of the event, has rescheduled the show for April 2-3, 2022. “The main reason for rescheduling the show is because of all the information we have been receiving about the COVID virus and the Delta variant and the safety and health implications,” explained Johnson.
