Where did your ancestors come from?




           Our usual meeting room will be in use on Saturday, September 12th, as Harmon Library celebrates its 65th anniversary.  Therefore, the Phoenix Chapter of the BFGHS will meet instead in Room C of the Burton Barr Central Library.  Chris Seggerman of the Arizona State Archives will speak on how to use newspapers for genealogical research .  Members of the Sun Lakes Chapter are also invited to attend. 

            Burton Barr Library is located at 1221 North Central Avenue in Phoenix.  Members are reminded to bring their laptop computers in order to access the library's online databases.  These include Ancestry Library Edition, Gale Genealogy Connect, HeritageQuest, and the Arizona Republic newspaper 1999 to present.

            Check out the BFGHS Events page for upcoming meetings and conferences around the Valley!

          The Maricopa County Public Library system has used proceeds from its dedicated county tax revenues to purchase a subscription to Ancestry Library Edition and HeritageQuest for local municipal library systems.  Although Ancestry is limited to in-library use only, HeritageQuest is accessible remotely via the Phoenix Public Library website.  Look for it under the 'Learning and Research' tab.

           Membership in the Black Family Genealogy & History Society is NOT limited to African-American research. Its members have ancestors from a wide range of states and countries.
