African-American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry Research Group Blogfest!

By Diane Haddad

Look for more African-American genealogy blogs to come online in the next couple of weeks: Our Georgia Roots blogger Luckie Daniels, who started the 200-member African-American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry (AAGSAR) Research Group (a closed group hosted on Facebook) in August, is planning the AAGSAR Blogfest for Jan. 5.

Daniels’ goal is to bring all the AAGSAR community members online with a blog or family website, creating a fantastic source of information and inspiration for African-American family history researchers. “We very well could see the likes of 75-plus new genealogy blogs online before 11:59p.m. Jan. 5,” Daniels says.
