Love watching "Finding Your Roots" but not sure where to start on your own ancestry research? Presenter Marcus Simmons will give you the foundation you need to start looking, from practical tips for exploring resources like and Ancestry Library, to the ethical and emotional questions you'll want to consider about what you find. Centering the experience of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, this virtual session will concentrate on searching U.S records, but best practices covered will also be applicable to international and adoptee-related records. 

Registration opens May 13th.

This event is sponsored by New Chapters in Community Health, a partnership between Madison Public Library, Wisconsin Book Festival, and the All of Us Research Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. With an intentional focus on African American, Latinx, LGBTQ+ and Rural audiences, we will explore topics crucial to the health and wellbeing of many in Wisconsin who have felt like they don't have a voice.
