Benevolent societies to be topic of webinar

The Illinois State Genealogical Society will present a free webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 9 p.m. entitled “Reconstructing Black Community Life through Benevolent Societies.”

Benevolent societies had a major impact on the social fabric of African American communities. This webinar explores several groups that impacted black families in multiple states. Most of the organizations of the late 19th century and 20th century are long gone, but their stories lie buried in cemeteries throughout the nation.
