The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Hosts Family History Juneteenth Events

For the second year in a row, congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are sponsoring family history booths at community Juneteenth events throughout Metro Atlanta on Saturday, June 15.

At these booths, family history experts will show people how to find their ancestors and learn about their family using free tools on and the People can search the largest collection of African-American historical records, ancestor profiles and photographs — absolutely free.

“We saw great success last year offering FamilySearch resources at Juneteenth events, and many people were able to find information about their families,” said Elder M. Andrew Galt, regional Church leader overseeing Georgia. “We are excited for more individuals to experience the joy that comes from connecting with family past and present.”
