A ProQuest partner, AfriGeneas is a social networking site that connects people to a community of researchers devoted to African American genealogy and history.
AfriGeneas is the essential resource for anyone conducting African American or African Ancestored genealogical research. Launched in 1996 and staffed entirely by volunteers, the site provides forums, chats, mailing lists, and searchable access to thousands of slave, census, death, and other records loaded by staffers and site visitors. Expert advice is always just an email or chat away. ProQuest is proud to partner with AfriGeneas.
