The National Archives at Kansas City will be offering the following free Genealogy Workshops during February.
Wednesday, February 15 - 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Throughout American history, immigration and naturalization laws have ebbed and flowed with the political climate. Tracking documentation and evidence of our ancestor’s paths to citizenship can be a challenge. Learn about the paperwork involved with the process and how naturalization encompassed a variety of individuals from immigrants to the native born. This course will be taught by Archives Technician Jennifer Audsley-Moore.
Friday, February 24 - 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Alien Case Files (A-Files)
Learn about the Alien Files (A-Files), a rich source of biographical information for family research and how to complete a successful request. The A-Files contain United States immigration documents generated and collected since the mid-20th century with a wealth of data, including visas, photographs, applications, affidavits, correspondence, and more. This course will be taught by Archivist Elizabeth Burnes.
These workshops are free, but reservations are suggested. For more information or to make a reservation for these free events, call 816-268-8000 or email us here.
