African American Research


The Hall House Research Library at the Fenton History Center will present a program on African American Genealogical Research in honor of Black History Month. The Fenton is committed to helping everyone in our area connect with their family and community history, and we hope that this program will help spark an interest in the Black Community. Our presenter is Tina Scott, the former Director of the Prendergast Library and she is also a very skilled genealogist. She belongs to a Facebook group that does African American genealogy and finds it to be a treasure trove of information.

The program is scheduled for Wednesday February 24 th at 6:30 and will be in a Zoom format due to ongoing Covid issues. We will be recording it for those that are unable to join us on the 24 th which will allow you to view it at your convenience. If you are interested, please call the Fenton at 716-664-6456 and provide your name, email and phone number. There is no cost, and you will be provided with a Zoom link prior to the program.
