Greg Carroll will present "Native American Research in West Virginia" at 6 p.m. Feb. 21 in the Archives and History Library at the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex in Charleston. The program is free and open to the public.
Carroll will discuss the tribes that were located in West Virginia between 1600 and 1800, as well as their languages, alliances and tribal movements. He also will provide information on how people interested in researching their Native American roots can try to find these often elusive relations.
Carroll is a graduate of Marshall University. He was a staff historian for the West Virginia Division of
Culture and History's Archives and History Section for 23 years until his retirement in October 2012. His primary focus was on Native Americans, African Americans and Civil War history.
