The African American Coal Mining Heritage Newsletter
Future project -- Researching African American Ancestors Newsletter
This newsletter was initially launched in July of 2004 as a monthly newsletter. However,
other commitments soon prevented its continued production at that interval. It is in the
process of being slightly redesigned, and back issues as well as future editions, will be sold
on a single issue basis for $2.00 a copy, including postage. A topical index of each
newsletter will soon be available, along with the order form. Click here to read a copy of
the July 2004 issue.
Plans are in the works to create another newsletter devoted to those in pursuit of their
African American heritage. The issues will be filled with a variety of content such as the
results of the analysis of numerous resources for content relevant to African American
research, extractions of African American genealogical data from unindexed sources, and
plenty of tips, strategies and experienced advice for researching your ancestors. As with
the coal mining newsletter above, a subject content index will be provided on the site, along
with the order form. Individual issues will cost $2.00 a copy, including postage. A digital,
or e-version is also being contemplated.
