    “Paths to Freedom” Genealogy Workshop
    During the Civil War, thousands of people seeking freedom from slavery came into Alexandria where they would be protected behind the safety of Union lines. But where exactly did they come from? How important were their family connections? Genealogy and historian Char Bah traced the migration of several families associated with Freedmen’s Cemetery and found important links among families and places – in freedom and in slavery. Her techniques can help African-American family history researchers break through the 1870 brick wall. This event is part of Ms. Bah’s ongoing genealogy series, “Their Voices Can Be Heard.” $5. Reservations recommended.
