Thursday, May 2, 2019
7 p.m.
Hunter Family Education Hall, History Center, 509 E. Deerpath, Lake Forest
$20 members, $30 nonmembers

Kenyatta Berry, a co-host of the PBS series Genealogy Roadshow, is coming to Lake Forest to discuss genealogy, family history, and her new book The Family Tree Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncovering Your Ancestry and Researching Genealogy. A question and answer session, book signing and refreshments will follow the program.

The Family Tree Toolkit is designed to help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming, treacherous, and exhilarating waters of finding your ancestors. From how and where to begin, and what records are available online and in repositories—to what to do once you find the information, how to share your story and, of course, DNA discoveries.

Kenyatta D. Berry is a professional genealogist, entrepreneur and attorney with over 20 years of experience in genealogical research and writing. A frequent lecturer, writer and television personality, Berry focuses on African American genealogy, slave ancestral research and DNA.
