'''AAGSNC Research Series - Historical Black Newspapers''' -&nbsp;Newspapers can provide incredible amounts of information that will help you in your research. An important aspect of researching black family history is that the major newspapers often did not publish items about members of the black community. Newspapers published by and for the black community stepped up to fill that void. Along with the kinds of things you'd expect -- births, marriages, deaths, military service, moves, hobbies, civic involvement, etc. -- you can also find stories specific to that community, such as personal ads searching for lost family members and historical reminiscences that include the names of former slave owners.
 
 
 
'''AAGSNC Research Series - Best of Websites for African American Research''' - With the array of subscription based websites for genealogy, it can get confusing regarding which ones have the best records for African ancestored genealogy research.

'''AAGSNC Research Series - Back Away From the Computer: You’ll Find More Offline''' - The online revolution in genealogy has been an immense help to researchers.

If you said yes to any of these questions, then the African American Research Workshop (AARW) may be the remedy to your genealogical challenges! The workshop is scheduled the fourth Wednesday of each month.

'''CGS Intermediate Research Series''' - Church Records - This class will introduce the kinds of information kept by various churches. We will discuss how to find these records whether on the Internet, microfilm or still in the resident church.
 
 
 
'''CGS Intermediate Research Series''' - Newspaper Research - Often used as a last resort because there were no indexes and the only copies were located in libraries where your family lived, this resource is becoming an amazing tool for genealogists. This class will identify where to find newspaper sources, how to search them and provide up-to-date methods not only to prove, but to enhance your genealogical research.
