Join Genealogist and Researcher, Tim Pinnick, to learn how to use African American newspapers in your research.

African American newspapers played a critical role in the dissemination of news in communities of color, and they contain an immense amount of material to assist the genealogist in reconstructing communities and uncovering the everyday activities embarked upon by their ancestors. Individuals conducting African American research will find newspapers an extremely valuable part of their search strategy. 

Tim Pinnick is a highly regarded genealogist, specializing in post-emancipation African American research.  He is an article writer, national speaker, and author of the book, Finding and Using African American Newspapers.  Tim has been an associate instructor in the biennial “Researching African American Ancestors” course at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research since 2006, and in 2019 was the coordinator and facilitator of a landmark workshop course at the Institute entitled “Building an African American Research Toolbox.”

Co-sponsored by the Champaign County Genealogical Society.
