According to Byron Rushing, former CEO of Boston's Museum of Afro-American History, "Frank Dorman has . . . proven that the historical resources of the non-rich and non-famous are rich, pregnant and lying in wait to be delivered by the skillful use of traditional genealogical research combined with a respect for oral history." Foreword by James O. Horton. Includes an every-name index.
