Welcome to the Indiana African American Genealogy Group

The Indiana African American Genealogy Group, established in 1999 and comprised of family researchers of all levels, is dedicated to one mission--enhancing the availability of resources for the study of African American genealogy.

 

We execute our mission by promoting the accumulation and preservation of African American genealogical and historical materials; uniting all individuals who want to share in the growth of African American genealogy; fostering and encouraging family research through education, transcribing documents for public use and contributions to repositories; and promoting community awareness of the importance of family history and preservation.

 

We invite you to join us in our quest to preserve and promote personal black histories. Our group meets from 12 to 2 p.m., on the third Saturday of each month, at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, in downtown Indianapolis. The public is welcome.
