African American Heritage

In honor of Black History Month, discover your African American ancestry by using African American Heritage! This ProQuest website was created with the help of African American genealogists to help you explore your African roots. You can access numerous government record collections, such as U.S. Census, marriage, and military records, as well as specialized databases like the Registers of Slaves and Free Persons of Color. African American Heritage even has a link to AfriGeneas, a social-networking website that provides you with access to expert advice, forums, chats, and mailing lists. To get started, click here.
