“The Bones Collector” Newsletter

An excellent monthly newsletter with tips on research, sources and techniques, “Ancestor Searching” is part of the Huntsville (AL) Public Library blog, The Bones Collector.

This blog by Richard White, Computer Genealogy Librarian, Huntsville-Madison County Public Library, has useful information such as how to map out your ancestors’ migrations, planning genealogy trips, using LDS Family History Centers and more.

Huntsville is where I was born, grew up, and reared my children, and my mother was very involved in the Huntsville Heritage Room on the third floor of the library. I spent many hours there as she pored over microfilms and manuscripts, looking for my father’s ancestors who spent a several generations in “Lower Alabama” before moving on to Mississippi. The HHR has genealogy material from all over the US, and is truly a gem!

The blog also has links to genealogy happenings in the North Alabama area. If you’re planning to go see the Space and Rocket Center or Space Camp on vacation, swing by HPL. You’ll be surprised at all the genealogy you can find there!

    Yes, I did. But thanks for sharing! I find it very exciting to know that there are growing numbers of African Americans conducting genealogy research, reaching out to find their loved ones, when there’s still a misconception out their that tracing ones family tree as an African American is next to impossible.
