ANKOBIA6 PROGRAM

News: We are honored to be holding classes in February & May 2019 at the Freedom House in Grove Hall thanks to the Friends of Dudley Branch Library of BPL.

"Ankobia" in Twi means those who lead the battle in commitment and courage.  Ankobia6 (A6), is a 'finding family roots' program for individuals or small groups of community residents.  It involves research, discovery and presentation (story-telling).  Participants move through six phases of global genealogy and history for beginners (A6):

A1. Why Roots?   A2. Autobiography   A3. Elders   A4. Sasha & Zamani (ancestors 'in' living memory and 'beyond' living memory)   A5. Afrika I Belong (deep ancestry)   A6. Bearing Tradition (sharing/story-telling event)


Do not be mistaken, the object of the man is not to make a carpenter, but the object of a carpenter is to make a man.
— W.E.B. DuBois

RESEARCH SERVICES

We are all aware of the toll that lack of self-knowledge and self-respect and mis-education can take on our community.  A6 helps:

  1. Build intelligent family research plans.

  2. Generate findings that carry values & traditions forward.

  3. Receive training in basic genealogy research, spreadsheet use, internet navigation and other skills needed to re-construct our own personal family history and align it to the wider global Ourstory

 
 

ReIdren Staff can also map out the specific next steps of your research-to recover your Personal History better, deeper & with meaning.  Why pay someone $55/hr over a 20 hour project plus expenses as a genealogist (sometimes adding up to well over $2,000) when we can teach YOU to do YOUR OWN RESEARCH effectively in just a few hours time.  All you need is access to the internet, a printer, and a library card.  You will soon be discovering information on your family you had NO IDEA about before.  Bring us in today.
