Description: Revised in 2009, this edition of African American Family Histories and Related Works in the Library of Congress incorporates all the past efforts of Sandra Lawson and Paul Connor, supplemented by the edition of 84 family histories and genealogical handbooks. Because of the changing technological environment since the first publication of this guide, links to the Library of Congress vast collection of digitized records and resources related to the African American experience in America have been included covering African American culture and society, places, slave narratives, military records, and resource guides. These electronic resources include digitized oral histories, newspapers, maps, and photographs. The addition of these digital resources and books published after 1997 enriches the availability of resources pertaining to African American family histories at the Library of Congress.
