  • Blue Springs South Mid-Continent Library 2220 SW State Route 7 Blue Springs, MO USA (map)

This mini-workshop will provide some insights on how family historians may get a good start with their genealogy, especially if they are or have African American heritage. David W. Jackson's program is based on 30-years of research as he re-discovered and proved that his great great grandfather was born a slave. Based on Jackson's book, "Born a Slave: Rediscovering Arthur Jackson's African-American Heritage." Genealogy Information Packets provided! Let's get STARTED!
