On February 21, 2013, Greg Carroll will present “Native American Research in West Virginia” at the Thursday evening lecture in the Archives and History Library in the Culture Center in Charleston. The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Carroll will discuss which tribes were located in the area between 1600 and 1800, their languages, alliances, and tribal movements. He also will provide information on how people with possible Native American ancestry can try to find these often elusive relations.
Greg Carroll is a graduate of Marshall University. He was a staff historian at West Virginia Archives and History for 23 years until his retirement in October 2012, and focused on Native American, African American, and Civil War history.
