A meeting was held Saturday to launch an African-American genealogical research group in Oklahoma. Attendees included representatives from the Oklahoma Genealogical Society, the International Association of Professional Genealogists, and the founder of the Coltrane Group, which has a mission of preserving and revitalizing the historical black towns of Oklahoma. Several private citizens also were in attendance.

The group’s next meeting was set for 10:30 a.m. April 2 at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City. Details may be found in an article by Kimberly Burk in the NewsOK web site at http://newsok.com/article/5480754.
