Secrets to African American Roots is a hands-on procedural guide for researching Afro-American sources in early records that are applicable to this specialized area of genealogy. Covered in detailed instructions are the ten basic steps to-do list, the ten basic questions to ask and the ten basic procedures to follow while identifying family records in all jurisdictions. From oral family histories to migration patterns to military and pension records to repositories and websites, the genealogical researcher is given sources and suggestions to make the information gathering process successful.

It was my hope to create a very simple, easy-to-follow starter guide for those venturing into the unknown world of records and resources. This is a beginner s manual but has much to offer the discouraged intermediate researcher. Colette Thomas Smith
