AfriGeneas Records Database Review

AfriGeneas is the largest African American genealogical database. Their Welcome Message reads:


AfriGeneas provides resources, leadership, promotion and advocacy for the mutual development and use of a system of genealogy for researching African related ancestry.


To find and document the last slaveholder and the first African in each family.


To encourage and support all African ancestored individuals and families to begin and continue researching their roots until all possible resources are exhausted and the results are published.


While their site has a wealth of information, their Records Database has some of the best African American information and records available. Here is some of what this database has to offer. Check back to AfriGeneas often, as researchers submit often.

Here are a couple of GREAT books written by Melvin Collier as he researched his African American roots. I highly recommend these books in assisting you and giving you ideas as you research your families:
