The Routledge Atlas of African American History

During the May 15th meeting of the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California (AAGSNC), there was discussion about finding ancestors when all you know from the census is the state where the person was born.  Member Barbara Tyson suggested using an atlas to identify counties and centers of black populations in southern states prior to and after the civil war.

Barbara was referencing Jonathan Earle’s, The Routledge Atlas of African American History. You can purchase this resourceful book here from our Amazon store.
