PARK HILL – Learn more about your cultural heritage at the Cherokee Family Research Center’s genealogy workshop on March 21. 


Led by an experienced, professional genealogist, the workshop will teach participants how to begin a genealogical research and provide resources available to assist them. 


Educational sessions provide an in-depth look at the history of the Cherokee National Female and Male Seminaries, the U.S. Assimilation and Civilization policy’s effect on the Cherokee Nation and the 13 detachments on the Trail of Tears. 


The workshop will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Osiyo Training Room at 17676 S. Muskogee Ave., behind the Cherokee Nation Gift Shop. Participants will have a 45-minute break for lunch on their own.
