Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy. My family tree is here on WikiTree but it's private.

This profile is the project account for the WikiTree US Black Heritage Project. We seek to add, connect, and honor members of the African-American community as well as welcoming new WikiTree members and helping them connect to their ancestors.

We hope to become the largest online public database for African-American family as well as the largest online public database of connected enslaved ancestors in existence.

We would love your help! Please answer here if you are interested in joining us.

A couple of questions: Do you want profiles created for white people in the household with one Black servant? I also have a white family of three with 4 unrelated Black ‘employees’. How many profiles here? 4? 7?

It is up to you if you wish to create the white family profiles. Do create the 4 unrelated Black employees and if you are just adding the 1880 Census citation, please add the category Category:US Black Heritage Project, Family Tree Size One on each of their profiles. Thank you!

I created Megan Thee Stallion's mother's profile- Thomas-68056. If you can add it, I would appreciate it.

I don’t know whether you want to be added to space pages, this one might qualify if so:

Slaves of President James Monroe of Virginia

I think it would be good to add USBH to the pages for the presidents. Thanks! Emma
Ok, good. Remind me of the email

I am unfamiliar with this site but what I am trying to do is confirm that a certain family member is a descendant of the noted Josiah Henson (born Jun. 15,1789 and died May 5, 1883). The family member in question is Rodger Wesley Lambkin (born Jan. 21,1936 and died April 6, 1989). Any advice you could give me in this matter would be appreciated.

Try looking through the Lampkin names here: https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/LAMPKIN

I don't think Rodger is there, but you can create a profile for him if you want to create a free account.
