Lemon Project Genealogy Initiative Presents the Summer Sankofa Series
Are you ready to dive deeper into your family history? Well, we invite you to join us for our summer genealogy workshops! The Summer Sankofa Series is an opportunity for family historians to collaborate and learn more about genealogy research.
If you’ve participated in our recent genealogy workshops, you’ll be ready to join a community of genealogists dedicated to documenting and sharing their stories in an open forum. Together, in the spirit of Sankofa, we are connecting the past and present as we seek to know more about the lives of our ancestors.
The Lemon Project Genealogy Research Initiative provides family history research workshops and consultations to our descendant community in Williamsburg and the Greater Tidewater area. The continuing education workshops are free to the public and held virtually due to COVID-19 health restrictions.
The Lemon Project fellow is conducting specific research on enslaved people with ties to William & Mary. Many known and unknown African Americans helped build, maintain, and move the university forward – we want to ensure their stories and lives are never forgotten.
