marketing research exercise to find out how interested African American
people are in family history/genealogy. The information will be used to
create a website specifically designed to enable black people to do family
history research easily and affordably. It is possible that the site will
also offer related services, such as photo preservation and sharing,
forums and family reunion planning.

Based on the incredible success of genealogical websites and television
programs like "African American Lives" with Dr. Henry Louis Gates, the
creators of the website believe "There is a huge market for a research and
sharing facility specifically geared toward the average, everyday African

participate in the survey -- which is FREE and does not involve any

The goal is to generate one million hits over the 28 days of Black History
Month 2007 - proving once and for all just how interested African
Americans are in knowing about their history.

Go to to cast your vote.

The survey is part of the Family Research Project of the Center for
African American Archival Preservation based in Atlanta, GA.
