The National Archives at Kansas City will offer two free genealogy workshops this week. Both classes will be held at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri 64108.
Becoming a U.S. Citizen: A Look at Naturalization Records
Thursday, February 28 from 10:00 – 11:30 AM
Throughout American history, immigration and naturalization laws have ebbed and flowed with the political climate. As a result, tracking down documentation and evidence of your ancestor’s path to citizenship can be a challenge. Come learn about the paperwork involved with the process and how naturalization encompassed a variety of individuals from immigrants even to the native born.
African American Census Research
Thursday, February 28 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM (rescheduled from last week.)
Tracking African American ancestors through the U.S. Federal Census can be challenging due to the heritage of slavery. Learn how to evaluate data on the Census to learn more about African American ancestors that were free and slaves.
