Family History Month: Kenyatta D. Berry

Main (Oakland)

Kenyatta D. Berry, co-host of the PBS series Genealogy Roadshow, will be in Pittsburgh to talk about genealogy, family history, and her new book, The Family Tree Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncovering Your Ancestry and Researching Genealogy. This event is co-sponsored by Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh for Family History Month.

The Family Tree Toolkit is designed to help genealogists navigate the sometimes overwhelming, sometimes treacherous, sometimes exhilarating waters of finding 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 more than 20 years of experience in genealogical research and writing. She began her genealogical journey with research at the State Library of Michigan in Lansing while in law school. 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.

This event is free, and open to the public, but registration is required. The first 100 people to register will receive an autographed copy of The Family Tree Toolkit. Registrants must attend the lecture to receive the book, limit one book per person. Please register by calling the Pennsylvania Department at 412-622-3154.
