FALLS CHURCH, VA, 28 APRIL 2018—The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announces the release of its two newest Continuing Genealogical Studies courses, African American Roots: A Historical Perspective and Federal Land Records.
African American Roots: A Historical Perspective is a cloud-based, self-paced course that introduces you to the uniqueness of searching for African American ancestors. A mixture of history and genealogy, it discusses the role Africans and African Americans played in the birth and growth of the United Sates from as early as the fifteenth century. Armed with this historical perspective, family historians learn where they might find information about African Americans in general and their own ancestors in particular.
