AAHRP Family History Workshop and Community Scanning Day

February 18, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Black history matters! Join members of the Schenectady African American Historical Records Project team to learn about preserving your family’s history and passing historic materials on to future generations. Archivists will be available to digitize photographs, letters, pamphlets, postcards, and other materials that speak to African American heritage in the area. Attendees will also have the opportunity to complete a survey about their items and their personal or familial experiences as members of the Black community in Schenectady. This program is free to all. For more event details, visit

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Schenectady County Legislature.
