Tracing Your Gullah Geechee Roots | Free Genealogy Workshop

Save-the-Date to join the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission and the Center for Family History at the International African-American Museum for a free genealogy workshop that will help connect you to your Gullah Geechee ancestors in the Corridor -- and the communities where they lived.

We'll also discuss how and why understanding aspects of Gullah Geechee culture such as kinship-based living patterns and other customs, traditions and beliefs - some retained from their West African origins -- can help to inform your research and deepen your understanding of your family's history in the Corridor. Registration will open soon.
