This page is the beginning of what I hope will be a collection of information that will be useful to those researching African American lines. Please send me information to add here.

The links below are the result of some time spent doing internet searches on the terms "Person County" and "African-American." Some seem useful. Please give me feedback on these links and please send me additional links to add that you have found helpful in your research.
