I'm a Blogger now!
After attending the International Black Genealogy Summit (IBGS) (which was AWESOME) last weekend at The Allen County Public Library, I decided I needed a blog. I had already tentatively decided on the name for my blog. You may wonder My Colored Roots??? What's that about? You'll have to come back to see.
For those who weren't there or for those who missed it, there is a new African American Gateway at the Genealogy Center in the library. You kinda might miss it if you aren't familiar with their site, or you might miss it if you are familiar with their site. For those who weren't there or who haven't seen the Gateway yet, it's a culmination of a book previously published by Curt Witcher, director of the Genealogy Center. The book is titled African American genealogy : a bibliography and guide to sources and call number is 973 W771A. What's on the Gateway is updated info from the book and bunches of URLs. All of the books in the bibliography section are books actually in the Genealogy Center.
Anyway, welcome to my blog and please come back.
