October 20, 2018 11:00 am - 12:30 am Lecture Hall, Main Branch, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (Doors open at 10:30AM)
Kenyatta D. Berry, co-host of the PBS series Genealogy Roadshow, will monitor a question and answer session about her career, followed by a signing session for her new book, The Family Tree Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncovering Your Ancestry and Researching Genealogy. This event is sponsored by the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
The Family Tree Toolkit is designed to help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming, sometimes treacherous, sometimes exhilarating waters of finding your ancestors. From how and where to begin, to what records are available online and in repositories. From what to do once you find the information, to how to share your story and of course DNA discoveries.
Kenyatta D. Berry is a professional genealogist, entrepreneur, and attorney with over 20 years of experience in genealogical research and writing. She began her genealogical journey whilst in law school studying at the State Library of Michigan in Lansing. A native of Detroit, Berry graduated from Bates Academy, Cass Technical High School, Michigan State University and Thomas M. Cooley Law School. She has deep roots in Detroit, the city her ancestors have lived since the 1920’s.
