African American Research 101 *

African American Genealogy 101 will help you trace your own family roots, gather family stories, organize information, archive family photos and documents, share your family tree with others, hold a family reunion, grow closer together, and unite your family through generations. There will be an overview of the steps to begin, what types of records our ancestors left behind, and where to find those records. Genealogy research is a lot like detective work.  You are using clues to unlock a larger story.  Embrace your role as a sleuth!
