History of the Institute
For the past three years the Midwest African American Genealogy Institute (MAAGI) has provided an amazing learning experience for genealogists and researchers. Since that time, the Midwest African American Genealogy Institute, also known as MAAGI has grown and has taken its place as a trusted educational and training institute. As the fourth year emerges, the Midwest African American Genealogy Institute is growing.
MAAGI's history is a unique one, having been hosted for the first three years at Harris Stowe State University, in St. Louis. Participants found that MAAGI provided genealogical training and guidance needed to expand their skills. For 2016, the MAAGI experience will be hosted at one of the largest genealogy libraries in the country, Allen County Public Library (ACPL) in Ft. Wayne Indiana. We are excited about taking the institute to Allen County, and this next year, participants will be able to take advantage of being at this amazing repository, and will be able to utilize the research opportunities while there.
In 2016 attendees will select a track in which they will immerse themselves in a core curriculum for three days with 12 different classes, guided by nationally recognized instructors.
MAAGI 2016 will begin on Tuesday July 12th and conclude on Thursday July 14th, so come and join the Midwest African American GeneaIogy Institute family for a memorable and content rich experience!
Our goal is to provide education, through research with the right resources.
