Online African-American Genealogy Resources

On November 19, 2011, Angela Walton-Raji gave our members a presentation entitled, “The Future of African-American Genealogy Resources Online.” Angela is a longtime genealogist, lecturer and author and she shared little-known genealogy research tools and records above and beyond the larger sites like Ancestry, Footnote and Rootsweb. Angela showed examples from her own research and talked about the value of finding African-American data “hidden” on sites where it is not labeled as such. She also showed us data located on museum, archive and university websites, places sometimes overlooked for containing genealogy data. Everyone left the meeting with a list of new websites to go home and research.

Angela provided a list of African-American Blogs: AA Genealogy Blogs_Angela.

Angela  also hosts several popular genealogy websites/blogs:
