The National Archives at Kansas City will offer two free genealogy workshops in November. Both workshops will be held at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri.

Workshop Descriptions:

Dawes Rolls Decoded: Understanding Records of the Five Civilized Tribes
Wednesday, November 6 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Dawes Records, created between 1898 and 1914, provide detailed information regarding tribal citizenship for members of the Five Civilized Indian Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Creek, Choctaw, and Seminole. Learn about the history of these records, how to search for them, and how to avoid common assumptions and pitfalls.

Counting Everyone: Using Federal Census Records to Find Your Ancestors
Saturday, November 16 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Everyone counts! The Census documents people from all walks of life: immigrants and store clerks to celebrities and everyday people. This course will introduce beginning genealogists to the U.S. Federal Census, 1790-1940, while providing direction on how and where to start researching your family history. Learn to discover clues, codes, and other telling details about your ancestors’ lives.
