Midwestern Roots Lite: From Roots to Roofs

Are you anxiously waiting for Midwestern Roots 2022? We know we are! That is why we are launching a mini virtual conference this summer, just for you. 

The places our ancestors lived help us to tell their stories. Join us for a series of workshops to learn how to rebuild the worlds where your families lived. From urban neighborhoods to rural farms, we will help you to dive into the places and spaces where your family came from to tell a fuller story.  

Register for all four for a $10 discount and four chances to win a Midwestern Roots 2022 full conference registration. That’s a $200 value!
