Researching Hartford’s Early Black and Native Communities with Dr. Kathy Hermes
The Ancient Burying Ground Association and The Hartford History Center are presenting a free virtual workshop on researching Hartford’s early Colonial Black and Native American communities.
New research has uncovered information on over 500 African, African American and Native Americans buried in Hartford’s Ancient Burying Ground, 1640-1815. Dr. Kathy Hermes, historian, will demonstrate how to use this new information and how to use primary sources and archives to uncover their stories. Students, teachers, family historians, church historians, descendants, genealogists, and anyone interested in early Hartford will be fascinated. This program is funded by the ABGA and CT Humanities.
Registrants are invited to send research questions on the topic in advance to Jasmin Agosto, Hartford History Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
