Geneaology for People of Color
Geneaology Resources for People of Color

Many of our ancestors followed the North Star to Freedom. We, their children will never be free until our roots are as much a part of us as the air we breathe. Sever a tree's roots, and the tree dies. Sever a people's roots and they are lost.For african americans, the search for our roots can be a difficult and daunting task. Some of us jump on the geneaology train, only to be de-railed by missing records, incomplete information, and lack of knowledge.

Where do I begin? What resources are there? Where did my elders come from?
