African American Research Resources for the Nelson/Boswell Family and Relatives

In the NGS Magazine, July-September 2012 publication, Pamela Lyons Brinegar, CG, wrote an article entitled, "Researching Nineteenth-Century African American Women."  The following were online resources that Pamela had suggested to enrich your African American historical projects :

Records of the field offices for the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Land
Digital Library on American Slavery
                http://library.uncg.edu/slavery/
African American Women
Notable Kentucky African Americans
                http://uky.edu/Libraries/NKAA
African American Records and Research – FamilySearch.org


In the coming weeks, I will explore each of these, and reveal if I am successful in revealing additional information regarding my Thomas Nelson/Eliza Boswell family project.  In the meantime, if you are also researching families who might have records in these areas, please try them yourself.
