Celebrating African American Family History

February is Black History Month in the United States. If you have Black American ancestry, you might want to begin tracing your family tree this month while many museums and archives have special exhibits to mark the month. Here are a few of the Web sites that I have found which provide resources for the beginning black genealogist:
The Britannica Guide to Black History
AFRO-America's Black History Museum
The Library of Congress Resource Guide for the Study of Black History and Culture
"African American Family Research," an excellent article by Roseann Reinemuth Hogan, Ph.D.
"The Challenge of African American Research," by Curt B. Witcher; another excellent article
African American Lifelines
African American Genealogy Research Resources
Afrigeneas; probably the best-known Black American genealogy site
