African American Travel 1930s-1960s -- The Travelers' Green Book


The Travelers’ Green Book

In an age of prejudice, African Americans were often challenged as they travelled.  Because of Jim Crow laws, sundown laws, and other restrictive legislation, along with the possibility of physical danger, in 1936, Victor Green began publishing a guide to help African American travelers.  He identified “safe” places where African American travelers could have a meal, spend the night, get their automobile serviced or take advantage of other services.

1947 Trip -- Atlanta, GA, to Alexandria, VA
The Washington Post article The forgotten way African Americans stayed safe in a racist America discusses the history of this book and gives some interesting insight into the time period.

You can find online, at the New York Public Library (NYPL), a collection of 21 volumes of The Green Book covering from 1937-1964. As part of a related project, the NYPL Labs created an interactive map where you can navigate a trip using The Green Book travel guide content.

I looked at a trip in 1947 from Raleigh, NC, to Alexandria, VA.  It was interesting that the destination became Johnson’s Jr. Hotel, 1509 Vermont Ave, N.W. (which is actually in Washington, DC).  Since my trip was just under 250 miles, it didn’t look for a restaurant.  So, I extended my start place to Atlanta, GA.  Interestingly, it took me through West Virginia, so I could dine at a restaurant in St.
1956 Trip -- Atlanta, GA to Alexandria, VA
Albans, WV.  Apparently, this is because neither NC nor VA were apparently hospitable to African American travelers at the time in 1947.  By the 1956 book, this had changed dramatically with many NC and VA options listed.  I was then able to dine in NC and my lodgings were actually located in Alexandria, VA.

Do play around with this navigation tool to get a perspective on how limited the travel options were in 1947, and how improved, though not great, they were in 1956.



Besides the obvious of limited options, what most struck you as you planned your trip, as an African-American in 1947 or 1956?

Did you celebrate these this month? Jewish American Heritage Month and/or Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In May we celebrate both Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Jewish American Heritage Month


In a country as diverse as the U.S., there are so many ethnicities to be celebrated.

I almost let May end without mentioning two of these.

The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum pay tribute to the generations of Jewish Americans and Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America’s history and are instrumental in its future success.


They have updated the websites where these two heritages are celebrated.  Each website includes many resources that you will want to check out, especially the Exhibits and Collections tabs which includes mentions of resources located at each repository previously named as well as articles, research guides, collection overviews and more.  Now that I said that, I also really enjoyed the images (I am always drawn to visual elements).  Then, I also checked out the “For Teachers” tab and that had some really neat stuff also.  You know what, just check out both sites since I couldn’t resist watching some old videos as well.




How did you celebrate these heritages this month?




Editor’s Note: In the past we have celebrated many different heritage months.  Here is a sampling of those posts ….

Have you checked out James Tanner's series on Real Property?



James Tanner, Genealogy’s Star, did a great series on real property last year.

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to share his great series with you and I think now is the time.

For many of us, researching land is one of the few ways to document our ancestors.  Land was very valuable -- taxes were paid on it, houses built on it, improvements made on it, crops grown or livestock fed/housed on it, mills and blacksmith shops constructed on it, family members are buried on it, etc.

Here are the links to his series of articles … [I think in reverse order so I suggest you start at the bottom]



What was the most interesting “new-to-you” fact or resource that you learned about?

Online & FREE Masonic Records -- Are You Using These Wonderful Resources?


As usual, the genesis for this post was “stumbling” across some neat records and then asking, as usual, are there more?

Recently, 18th Century Minutes Books from the Grand Lodge of North Carolina (St. John’s Lodge No. 3, New Bern, NC) were placed on line.  I also discovered that the same website (Digital NC) includes the Book of Marks from Raleigh Chapter No. 10 of Royal Arch Masons amongst other holdings.  With a bit more searching, I also discovered Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina for the years 1797-1820 with a few odd later years.  Wow!

There is already some useful information online regarding the Grand Lodge of North Carolina including a listing of lodges since its organization in 1787, The Beginnings of Freemasonry in North Carolina and Tennessee, Board of Custodians and Certified Lecturer Historical Overview 1902-2016, and more.  Additionally, The Southern Historical Collection at UNC (Chapel Hill) has a Collection – Freemasons. Grand Lodge of North Carolina Records, circa 1790-1951. You can access the entire collection, for FREE, by visiting The Louis Round Wilson Special Collections Library or, some of the collection, volumes for Lodge 141 (Carolina Lodge, Anson County, Chartered 2 Dec 1851, Surrendered 15 Mar 1935), have been digitized and are available.

As expected, Internet Archive (one of my favorite places to seek out historical information) has many resources for Masonic organizations around the world under “Grand Lodge” + Masons and “Grand Lodge” + Freemasonry.  Many many lodge histories are to be found.

Did you know that there is a Masonic Library & Museum Association?  The website includes links to Masonic Libraries’ Catalog – it’s a work in progress.

The MLMA was founded in 1995 by a group of Masonic librarians and museum directors to share their common experiences, interests and ideas. MLMA is an international organization of members who are Masonic library and museum professionals and volunteers, sharing a love of Masonic materials, research, libraries, and museums.

I found the website Mason Post.com helpful for identifying active lodges across the U.S.

And, Ancestry.com has the Worldwide Masonic Directory, 1860 where you can search the lodge membership for the stated year.

Obviously, I could go on and on about searching for records of ancestors who might have been members of the Masons.  

Do you have ancestors who were Freemasons?  What records have you found for them?  Is there a real gem of a database that other family historians researching into Freemasonry might find helpful?

MyHeritage Unveils Tribal Quest -- Global Pro Bono Initiative to preserve the family histories of remote tribes


From our friends at MyHeritage ...

... unveiling Tribal Quest, a global pro bono initiative of MyHeritage to preserve the family histories of remote tribes.

MyHeritage believes that every family history should be documented, and as we have the tools to do so we felt we could help those communities who live without access to modern technology, to preserve their precious family stories for generations to come. 

The first Tribal Quest expedition was to Namibia. MyHeritage employees interviewed hundreds of representatives from the Himba tribe. The MyHeritage team visited 19 villages, took hundreds of family photos, and used MyHeritage to record the family history information of over 2,000 tribe members. 

The next expedition was to Papua New Guinea. MyHeritage employees interviewed tribal groups and built 36 family trees containing over 4000 individuals.

We’ve produced a beautiful website featuring interesting family stories we discovered on our Namibia expedition, including video, photos, and a travel log. We will soon add materials from our trip to Papua New Guinea.

Here's a video which explains more about Tribal Quest.

Please read more about Tribal Quest in our official blog post: http://blog.myheritage.com/2016/05/new-initiative-tribal-quest/ .
