Program Description

Event Details

The Antebellum Southern Plantation Records can offer multifaceted views into many white and African American Southern families. This resource documents families’ personal and business correspondence, conditions of plantation life (including the elusive names of slaves and descriptions of slave relationships), and much more!

Learn from Dallas Public Library Genealogy Specialist Ari Wilkins about the genealogical value of the Southern Antebellum Plantation Records – how they are organized, how to search the collection and apply it towards your genealogical research.

Join the Dallas Genealogical Society on the first Saturday of the month to hear a free genealogy speaker and learn new ways to find YOUR family history. Hospitality is provided at 10:30 a.m. followed by a short business meeting at 11 a.m. followed shortly by the FREE educational presenter.

Can't make it in person? Join the meeting online through the DGS website.
