New African-American Genealogy Databases

The Illinois State Genealogical Society is proud to announce the creation of a new database at the ISGS website.

In honor of Black History Month, ISGS member volunteers have been busy scanning and transcribing a selection of African-American genealogy articles which were first published in the ISGS Quarterly during the late 1970s. Located under Free Databases and titled African-American Genealogy, items so far include these articles:
Published during the exciting post-Roots era when the genealogy community experienced a re-awakening and a renewed interest in African-American genealogy, these articles provide valuable data for all researchers.

More of these types of articles and databases will appear as they are transcribed. Please check back frequently for new items!
