Who's the Bomdiggity in YOUR FAMILY TREE?
We are here to help you (as your family historian) answer that question? HOLLA at ya ANCESTORS TM Step-by-Step Class Genies often say that "African American Genealogy (family history research) is the most fun you can have with your clothes on"! Wow! Can you believe it? While researching my mother and uncle's educational migration from a small town in Milledgeville, Georgia to Atlanta and later to New York, I found the image (above) of my uncle, Henry Veal Jr (aka III) standing next to Jackie Robinson shortly after he broke the National Baseball League color barrier. How cool is that! Way cool! Better than clothes, right?
Our mission is to guide and assist you, wherever you are "in preserving, promoting and archiving your African American (AA) family research every day in every way." You may need assistance with determining where to start, locating sources, documenting your citations sources, recording conversion (VHS to DVD), assessing archival supplies for your precious ancestral or selecting a repository to donate your family history, images and memorabilia . You may be a beginner excited about getting started, frustrated with a brick wall or think you have enough documentation to develop a physical tribute in your Bomdiggity's honor . You may, also, be disgusted that your elders' secretive nature about your family's history; a family member who lost, burned, or threw away the family bible; or the cousin that hoards all of your family's pictures; didn't pay taxes and lost the family land back in your grandparents' hometown. If any of this sounds familiar, you are finally at the right place. You are not alone! All of this happens to almost every (AA) family historian during your lifelong pursuit of your family's legacy. Just tell us what you need.
