Commemorating Juneteenth and Discovering Family History

Juneteenth is more than a remembrance of the stain slavery left on our nation. It is our nation's way to honor Black Americans' long march toward freedom and the profound impact those many steps have left on our national conscience and our pursuit of a just and equitable society.

The National Genealogical Society is proud to help Ancestry® announce the premiere of a powerful new film, “A Dream Delivered: The Lost Letters of Hawkins Wilson,” which brings to light a family reunion over a century in the making. 

Visit Ancestry.com/Blackhistory starting on June 17 to watch the film and learn more, and to get started exploring your own family story. 

Join us for the next MemberConnects! for an encore of Andre Kearn's NGS Conference banquet presentation, "Revealing Our Full American Mosaic."  The Zoom meeting is Wednesday, 29 June, at 8:00 p.m. (ET).

The National Genealogical Society will be closed Monday, 20 June 2022, in observance of the Juneteenth holiday.
