About Us

The Indiana African American Genealogy Group was established in 1999. The group was created by family researchers of all experience and interest levels.

Today our group skill levels still range from those who are begiinners to the more experienced genealogists and family historians. Which provides for a great learning experience for all.


Our vision - to discover and document the African ancestry in each family - lives through each person with whom we share, inform,  and encourage everyone we touch. All are welcome!

        African American genealogy.

  • Fostering and encouraging family research through education.
