Genealogy is tracing your family tree to find your parents, grandparents, their parents and so on.
Tracing our ancestors can be difficult for African Americans because most of them were enslaved and were not allowed to have last names, to marry, to own property or to vote. This legacy continued even after Emancipation.
While it's difficult, it's not impossible to find the last slave holder and the first slave ancestor. You just have to be curious and organized, that is a reporter and detective all rolled into one.
Publishing Your Family History
After you finish your interviews, send us your short family history and we'll post it on the AfriGeneas KIDZ Korner Family History page.
