African-American research

Today I addMississippi Delta Negro Children - Free Pictures at Historical Stock Photos.comed 49 websites to my Pinterest board for African-American genealogy research.  As far as I could tell, they are all free sites, without subscription necessary to use. While the new sites are listed and linked below, I encourage you to check out the Pinterest board. I really like using Pinterest for genealogy, because of the visual effect of the pictures used as a display rather than mere words.

You can find the Relatively Curious pinterest boards here:
