Project: Black Heritage

Categories: Black Heritage Project | African Projects

This is a worldwide project that will assist location projects to create something similar to the US Black Heritage Project that meets their local needs. The Black Heritage project will build and oversee categories and systems dealing with the topic of slavery worldwide.

Are you interested in the Black Heritage Project?



This project's goals are:

  • To collect in one place information and resources to assist in building and documenting Genealogies for those around the world with African ancestry.
  • To bring together WikiTreers interested in connecting Black families to the Global Family Tree.
  • To improve the profiles of the people who emigrated and the people who were forced to emigrate from Africa to other locations around the world, as well as improving profiles of their descendants.
  • To provide and maintain a logical and organized structure, and create a method to link unconnected family trees in a way to help individuals identify their ancestors and celebrate their history.
