When your ancestor said that he had a sixth grade education – what did it mean? Go beyond “reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic” in this lecture about education in the 19th and 20th centuries. Join Ari Wilkins, professional genealogist and library associate, to learn about the generational and ethnic differences in levels of schooling and literacy, moonlight schools, compulsory education laws and more.
