• African American Heritage

    ProQuest® African American Heritage is a groundbreaking digital resource exclusively devoted to African American family history research.

    This collection was created in partnership with leading African American genealogists and recognized leaders in genealogical information to develop a comprehensive mix of resources, records, and tools specifically pertaining to African Americans.

    As a consequence of slavery and the changing legal status of African Americans, research in this area can be more challenging than other genealogical inquiries.

    ProQuest African American Heritage helps individuals address these unique issues by not only bringing together records critical to African American family research, but also by connecting them to a community of research experts, whose mentoring and assistance can frequently be the difference between research success and futility.
