When you join the African American Historical and Genealogical Society, you enter an extensive network of African American historians, genealogists, researchers, and educators dedicated to preserving African-ancestored family history, genealogy, and cultural diversity by teaching research techniques and disseminating information throughout the community. Our primary goals are to promote scholarly research, provide resources for historical and genealogical studies, create a network of persons with similar interests, and assist members in documenting their histories.

Our network is supported by an annual conference, webinars, podcast, publications, tours, family connections and other supporting databases, and extensive other resources. 

For a nominal Membership Fee, please join our network and become part of our team.
