About the Author:

ANNE E. JOHNSON holds a degree from the University of Wisconsin. She has spent many years researching and performing traditional ballads and songs from the British Isles and Ireland. This work inspired her interest in British history and emigration and in her own British roots.

ADAM MERTON COOPER holds a degree from the University of Wisconsin. He became interested in African linguistics and the cultural diaspora when he began to trace his own genealogy as a child.

Review:

"Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular enthnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors."-FGS Forum

"It will appeal to anyone - teenager or adult - who is interested in genealogy."-The Book Report

"At the end of each chapter, the authors provide an excellent annotated list of resources that offer a better understanding of historical events in Africa and black family life in America....Johnson and Cooper have put together a practical and useful guide for educators and students."-National Genealogical Society Quarterly

"Few other titles on this level mention CD-ROM censuses or other vital records, yet these volumes even compare specific family history software programs....The titles are also noteworthy for the historical background provided....they offer very specific advice to young people on how to write relatives, what to ask, and how to file information once it's collected."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"This outstanding and unique guide will reach students from advanced elementary into older grade levels, examining the heritage of black genealogy and methods of researching and understanding Afro-American history. From talking to relatives and using the library to understanding racial bias in statistics and locating unusual sources of information, this specialized focus provides plenty of insight."-The Children's Bookwatch
