Black History Month Resource Spotlight


February is when we celebrate Black History Month. Throughout this month we will be posting resources to help with your African-American ancestral research, some available via NGS and some available elsewhere.  Some will help you directly with your genealogy while others might educate you on relevant historical topics.

We’ll start off with this resource list posted this week at Genealogy Insider, the website for Family Tree Magazine.

If you have a favorite African-American research resource you’d like to see us mention, please drop a note to UpFront@ngsgenealogy.org

Black History Month is celebration of the role African Americans played in shaping
U.S. history. The annual event started as “Negro History Week” in 1926, and blossomed into a month-long commemoration marked by every U.S. president in office since 1976.

Festivities kick off Feb. 1, and we'd like to help you celebrate your heritage. Discover your black history with some of our genealogy resources:
