Black History Month: More Research Resources

Through the years, I’ve posted a number of suggestions for African-American genealogical research during Black History Month.

Here are links to some of my past posts:

The great thing about the passage of time, in terms of online resources, is that more and more websites are adding to their digital collections.

Here are some newer websites that I’ve come across:

University of Washington’s Civil Rights and Labor History Consortium

Smithsonian Online Virtual Archives (SOVA) -Freedmen’s Bureau Collection

Slave Voyages

Mapping the Freedmen’s Bureau by Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier with an interactive map

In Motion: The African American Migration Experiences

This list offers many resources to help researchers trace their African-American heritage.
