African American History & Genealogy Meeting | Greenwood Project
Learn more about a project to honor the historic Greenwood Cemetery, the final resting place for many of Nashville’s African American community members for more than 120 years.
For more than 120 years, Greenwood Cemetery has served as the final resting place for many of Nashville’s African American community members. Join the Nashville Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society to hear Kathy Lauder discuss her ongoing work on the Greenwood Project, a project she created to document and honor all those interred in Greenwood Cemetery.
After Lauder, there will be a short educational session about using cemetery records in your genealogy & family history research. Attendees are welcome to share their current genealogy research progress.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Whether you are new to genealogy, or well-experienced, you are invited to join.
WHEN: Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM (CST)
WHERE: Nashville Public Library – Civil Rights Room – 264 7th Avenue North Nashville, TN 37219
FREE with Registration.
Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. The project began late June 2016. Approximately 360 spaces will be added, and other improvements will be made to the garage. Seventy-five parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in spring of 2018.
Due to the temporary parking space decrease and temporary lane closures, please allow extra time when planning to visit during peak hours or for special events.
