Workshop: Researching Genealogical History
March 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join local historian Barbara Desmarais for a story and a genealogy workshop. She’ll tell the true tale of the Heustons, a prominent Black family of Bath/Brunswick, Maine by sharing field and archival research she used to qualify Heuston Burying Ground as a national “Underground Railroad: Network to Freedom” site. In the hands-on workshop, she’ll use documents from her own ancestral mysteries to introduce participants to the techniques and common mistakes of genealogical research.
