In connection with the National Constitution Center’s feature exhibition Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello, the museum hosts local genealogy and ancestry groups for a special public program on Thursday, June 19—also known as Juneteenth, commemorating the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas in 1865. During an Introduction to Genealogy workshop, visitors will be given the necessary tools needed in order to delve deeper into their own family histories—perhaps even discovering a connection with a famous figure from history like Thomas Jefferson!
