United States Gotoarrow.pngAfrican American Research Gotoarrow.png African American Online Genealogy Records

Online collections of African American records for family history or finding ancestry, including vital records, slavery or freedman's records, slave narratives, and genealogy.

Remember that your African American ancestors are also represented in all the usual records made about the general populace: census, cemeteries, obituaries, military, and so on. This chart shows records that specialize in just African American records, but you should also search all the online records for the states in which they lived.
