The National Archives at Kansas City will offer the following free genealogy workshop on Friday, May 2, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri.

Workshop Description:

Archival Research 101 on Friday, May 2 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Genealogy research involves utilizing resources available at multiple archival institutions.

However, very few people have had interactions with archives. Do you know the differences between researching at a library and an archive? Do you know the best time of day to visit an archive? Do you know how to interact with archivists to get the information you are seeking? If you are unable to visit an archive in person, do you know how to write a request for records? This workshop will focus on how to interact with archival institutions in order to have a successful visit in person or through email, phone, or mail correspondence. This is a research methodology course.

To make a reservation for this free workshop, please call 816-268-8000 or email us here.
