Washington, D.C. is home to some of the most important repositories for genealogists. Whether you are doing research on your veteran ancestor, immigrant ancestor, homesteading ancestor—or simply want to leverage published resources, newspapers, and maps in your family history research—our nation’s capital holds the records you need. While we are unable to bring a group to Washington, D.C. this year, this four-day virtual research program will bring D.C. to you! We will devote time to each of the major repositories in Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Record Administration, Library of Congress, and DAR Library, receiving orientations from archivists and experts at each research center. Through 13 lectures, our genealogists will then help you contextualize the collections and make the most of these resources from afar. In addition to the orientations and lectures, participants will benefit from real-time demonstrations and activities, chatting with experts and fellow participants, and will receive a one-hour consultation with a genealogist in the week following the program.

Program includes:
Orientation and Introduction from repository experts
13 lectures from American Ancestors experts
1-hour, one-on-one consultation with an expert (to be scheduled the week following the program)
Access to session recordings, handouts, and other materials
NOTE: Live sessions will be broadcast through Zoom Video Conferencing.
