Fall Seminar Session Focus Black Homesteaders at the Crossroads of Freedom

BerniceBennettBlack Homesteaders at the Crossroad of Freedom with Bernice Alexander Bennett will answer these questions: Who were the homesteaders? What is the Homestead Act of 1862? What are the eligibility requirements? What is the application process? and What can you find in the land entry papers?

Utilizing records created if your family filed for a Homestead Act can enhance your family’s story and add rich details about their lives. Filling in the blanks between the dates is one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of researching our family history.

The 2021 Michigan Genealogical Council Virtual Fall Family History will be on September 18, 2021, co-sponsored with the Archives of Michigan and Library of Michigan. This year our featured speaker is Bernice Alexander Bennett. Once again, this year, the seminar will be held virtually using the Zoom webinar platform.

Early bird registration is open through 11:59 pm on September 6. For the complete schedule or to purchase tickets, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2021-virtual-fall-family-history-seminar-with-bernice-alexander-bennett-tickets-165251498681.
