Description: For the first time since the '60s and '70s, African Americans are embracing their past in large numbers. As the black middle class continues growing, more and more people are feeling a sense of indebtedness to "the ancestors, " whether their own or their peoples'. Whereas once most black Americans tended to shy away from their history of captivity, today people are beginning to understand the need for remembrance of things past. While the major concentration has been on the collective study of African-Americans as a people, many individuals are focusing on a more personal history, their own family's. "Finding a Place Called Home" -- now in paperback -- will show them the way.

"Finding a Place Called Home" is the most comprehensive work on the subject of black genealogy, and is written for the beginner who is serious about tracing his or her family tree. In a manner that is both academic and lyrical, Dr. Woodtor shows the new (or old) genealogist how to start looking for a family's African roots -- from reading census reports, slave schedules, and courthouse records to using the Internet. A section is also included on tracing Caribbean ancestry. New material is included in this paperback on tracing Native American roots and on using World War I records.
