SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints launched a new Web page that will make doing African American genealogy research easier. The announcement came during the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society's 28th annual conference, which is being held in Salt Lake City. The African American Resources page on FamilySearch.org will provide links to valuable African American genealogical sources.

FROM THE SITE WE NOTE:
The new Web page will also have digital downloads of keynote speakers and certain classes from this year's AAHGS conference.

In 2001, the Church released the Freedman's Bank Records - documents that contained information regarding several generations of African Americans immediately following the U.S. Civil War - on CD. The CD contains indexes which make the documents searchable.
