The West Baton Rouge Museum will host a lunchtime lecture, “Proofs of Purchase: Documenting Enslaved Ancestors,” presented by genealogist Jari C. Honora. The talk offers a brief overview of genealogical research for African Americans in the post-Civil War period, focusing primarily on tracing enslaved ancestors back through generations of captivity, including methods for identifying the last-known slave owners during the antebellum period. Honora is a New Orleans native and proud Louisiana Creole with roots dating back more than two centuries along Bayou Lafourche and the German-Acadian Coast. Noon. Free. westbatonrougemuseum.com.
