African American Online Database
This is a collection of links to African American Online databases.

The indexing of records is often an on-going project. Some collection indexes give no indication if they are a partial index or complete. If the name you are researching does not appear in an index, re-check the index at a later time or search for the record in the available original images. Some indexes are handwritten and a part of the image collection.
Online collections of African American records for family history or finding ancestry, including vital records, slavery or freedman's records, slave narratives, and genealogy.

Remember that your African American ancestors are also represented in all the usual records made about the general populace: census, cemeteries, obituaries, military, and so on. This chart shows records that specialize in just African American records, but you should also search all the online records for the states in which they lived.
