Dear Ms. Richardson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you Cara Jensen and Alice Lane for your informative and very helpful response. It is much appreciated..
Can you tell me how I can learn more about resources that are available for research on black americans or how I can learn more on how to maximize use of historyhub resources? Are zoom classes offered?
Hello Ms. Richardson,
Thank you for asking about how to use the National Archives resources better. NARA does not offer Zoom classes but research events are commonly held on YouTube and saved for the public to view at their leisure.
NARA has a YouTube Channel called Know Your Records with numerous videos posted by NARA staff on popular research topics such as land records and genealogy. Here is a link to our NARA web page with more information about Know Your Records.
Ancestry.com also has a similar YouTube Channel with many informational videos on how and where to search for records. Many of their videos have great quick tips from professional genealogists. Depending on your experience level, you may find Genealogy for Beginners playlist helpful.
All of the playlists are free and super helpful. Take time to browse comments for answers to common questions.
Best of luck with your research!
