New African American Genealogy Resources

Brand new to our collection: the first two volumes of D. C. Stricklin’s African American Genealogies from 1619 to the Present (SC 929.2 STRIC)!

This unique resource presents biographies and standard genealogies (using the Register System) of more than 250 members of African American families over “…fifty states and four hundred years…” Meticulously documented research in vital, census, court, probate, property, military, cemetery, and other records is intended to help those wishing to “…continue to reconstruct and document their own family history…by eliminating unnecessary time in duplicating research…” The work also “…strives to incorporate information on allied families,” as well as “…extended families and the communities in which they lived…” (from the summary on the back cover).

Find out more about African American families with our updated research guides on African American Genealogy and African Americans in Davenport and Iowa History.
