I found this while surfing genealogy blogs. It is one of the events I am looking forward to in 2009. The summit will be held October 29-31, 2009 at the Allen County Public Library, in Fort Wayne. This event signifies the first time that all of the black historical and genealogical societies in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean will come together to discuss the challenges and rewards of researching black genealogy.
I have put it on my calendar. Fort Wayne is a two hour drive from where I live so I should have no problems attending. More information can be found by clicking on the title.
