Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Beasley can trace her family back to 1790, but it has taken her 14 years to do so. The story of how she succeeded, this book illustrates how her steps can be followed by other amateur genealogists. In separate chapters, Beasley discusses getting started; using oral history, the census, church, manumission records and records from the Freedman's Bureau and the Negro baseball leagues, and searching the Internet. She provides instructions on how to conduct the search, gather findings, and publish the finished manuscript. Three chapters address specifically periods of slavery and freedom and the African connection. Six appendixes provide useful details on African American historical and genealogical societies, libraries and consulates, family information forms, and more. Along with Anne E. Johnson's A Student's Guide to African American Genealogy (Oryx, 1996) and African American Genealogical Sourcebook (Gale, 1995), this work should be in all comprehensive genealogy libraries.?Judith P.

The book gives a nice overview of black geneology but it's not the only book you'll need. It's an introduction to the subject. Unless your family kept marvelous records in the old family bible this book won't get you too far.

I couldn't put this book down. It provides tips for both the novice and the experienced researcher. It was just the information I needed to begin my family history search and I'm sure I will use it often.

This book will get you far whether your family kept excellent family records or NOT. It discusses and addresses the difficulties most African Americans face in tracing their family history. It provides many tips and resources for obtaining family information.
