39th Annual Afro–American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) Convention

October 11 – 13, 2018, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

African–American historians and genealogical enthusiasts are convening October 11 – 13, 2018 at the Valley Forge Casino and Resort in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania for the 39th Annual Afro–American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) Convention - "Tracing Our Roots in the Cradle of Liberty"

The AAHGS annual conference is the largest international African American conference that promotes African-ancestored family history, genealogy, and cultural diversity by bringing together subject matter experts that promote scholarly research, provide resources for historical and genealogical studies, create a network of persons with similar interests, and assist members in documenting their histories.

The three day event is packed with history–based programming with talks centered on history, genealogy, research methodologies, chapter capacity, education, preservation, DNA, and technology. There is ample opportunity for attendees to meet other historians, genealogists, and researchers who share your goals and your challenges.

In addition, AAHGS has organized pre–conference and conference tours of the historic city, which is home of Mother Bethel and Richard Allen Museum, the mother church of the nation's first Black denomination and The African American Museum.
