Black History Month

February is Black History Month - and what better time to start researching your African American heritage? Not sure how or where to begin? A very helpful guide is Black Roots by Tony Burroughs. If you don't have African American heritage but would like to learn more, check out any number of books or surf one of the many websites dedicated to black history.
The Historical Genealogy Department houses thousands of items related to African American research; see Curt Witcher's African American Genealogy for an introduction to these sources. Those who are unable to visit the library can request information through the Ask a Genealogy Librarian service, or by printing off a copy of the Research Services form and sending it in.
