Genealogy plays an integral part in the IndiVisible exhibit. The difficulties of determining one’s roots, as well as deciding which roots to embrace and follow, is an issue that lies at the core of the exhibit’s mission. This workshop will give attendees time to speak with genealogists and historians, both local and tribal, and learn about ways to begin the process of determining and discovering one’s ancestral heritage. This program will inspire those in attendance to pay attention to oral histories within their families, to view their living relatives as valuable sources of information, and to use these resources as a starting point for their personal genealogical research. Free and open to the public.
