On September 14-15, 2007, the Black Family Genealogy & History Society hosted the Seventh Annual West Coast Summit on African-American Genealogy. The title of the Summit was “Celebrating Generations–Past, Present and Future”.
One hundred fifty-two attendees came from many different states to participate in this event.
During the month of September, 2005, the Black Family Genealogy & History Society was profiled in an Arizona Republic article entitled “African-Americans’ Roots: Group researches lives in Arizona”. Reporter Sally Mesarosh included quotes from Mary Gant and BFGHS president Henrietta Beckford. A photograph of Katherine Ayers, then the BFGHS secretary, accompanied the newspaper edition of the article.
