Are you interested in what they did during the Civil Rights movement or just want geneaological information? It helps to know full names, where they lived and approximate date of birth. Then you can search databases on familysearch.org for personal information. It is a free site but you will need to set up an account. Experts here can direct you to Civil Rights records. Don't know if the African American history museum would have such records.
Hello and good morning. My name is Adrienne McCambry and thanks for the help I had at one time asked
some family members before and was told that no or I do not know so what I am suspecting is that someone
is either hold out or there is something that is a dark unknown issue. And I want to know why?
Dear Ms. McCambry,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you review NARA’s website for how to Start Your Genealogy Research and to conduct African American Research. You may wish to use Family Search for Free Family History and Genealogy Records; and FamilySearch Wiki to begin your research using information known about your ancestors.
We also suggest that you continue to gather names, places and dates from your relatives about their participation in the Civil Rights Movement in order to assist you with your research endeavors.
In addition, we suggest that you review the National Museum of African American History & Culture’s Civil Rights History Project; Library of Congress’ Civil Rights History Project; Birmingham Civil Rights Institute; Mississippi Civil Rights Museum; and National Civil Rights Museum At the Lorraine Motel websites for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
