Finding & Using African-American Newspapers

A recent post by George Geder has brought my attention to a new book on the use of African-American newspapers for genealogy research.  The book is written by Timothy Pinnick and on his website you can even read the first chapter for free.

I am personally a huge proponent of newspaper research for precisely many of the same reasons PInnick outlines in the first chapter of the book – it’s an excellent source to come to better understand the community back then and can be rewarding to read of even just the day-to-day activities.

I plan to add this to my wish list of books to get.  I am very much looking forward to reading it!

  1. I have read this book and it is a great read with lots of great tips. It’s a small little book with lots of information, an easy read. I’ve used several of his tips already. I bought the book and I highly recommend it. Timothy did a great job.
