Join public historian and professional genealogist Debbie-Ann Paige to answer the question “How do we find our people?” Discover how deeds, census records, letters, and other historic documents help uncover family history. Learn what will be important to future generations while exploring what those who have come before left behind. Participants will gain knowledge about genealogical research tools and methods in order to begin uncovering their own family story.

This program is produced in partnership with the Staten Island Community Alliance as part of the 3rd Annual Juneteenth Festival. Learn more about the festival here.
