Family Pride serves the vast and expanding numbers of African-Americans interested in tracing their family histories. It provides readers with the tools to begin their quest and overcome barriers unique to the African-American genealogical search, such as the scarcity of written records. Combining the inspiration of personal accounts with a wealth of practical information, it outlines the vast resources available to plot ones lineage, from oral history and census reports to church and manumission records, from the Freedmans Bureau to the Negro Baseball Leagues, from the National Archives to the Internet. Complete with step-by-step instructions on how to conduct the search, gather findings, and publish a finished document, Family Pride is an indispensable guide for all who want to know more about where they came from.
