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
African American Women
Notable Kentucky African Americans
African American Records and Research –

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.
