African American Genealogical Resources
Thirty-five years ago Alex Haley’s Roots prompted an unanticipated surge in peoples’ desire to examine their roots. While Haley’s efforts were directed toward developing his own ancestry, his narrative ignited a passion for family research in almost all ethnic groups. The problems Haley encountered were many but his efforts inspired many black genealogists to explore and catalog little used and relatively unknown source materials. This class provides direction in location and use of these resources as well as their relationship to the customary tools of genealogical research.
