Ancestral Project

Ancestral Project

Category: Events


On February 15, 2011, AGSNC's Outreach and Education Committee began working with a new program facilitated by Alameda County, CA Supervisor Keith Carson called the Ancestral Project.  This new program, which is aimed at youth, merges personal storytelling and genealogy so that participants are given the opportunity to learn about themselves and are given the skills to communicate what they’ve learned to their communities.

The project will continue in January 2012 with additional sites.  To learn more about the 2011 project, please visit the links below or contact us.
