African-American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry Research Group Blogfest!
Posted by Diane

Look for more African-American genealogy blogs to come online in the next couple of weeks: Our Georgia Roots blogger Luckie Daniels, who started the 200-member African-American Genealogy and Slave Ancestry (AAGSAR) Research Group (a closed group hosted on Facebook) in August, is planning the AAGSAR Blogfest for Jan. 5.

Daniels' goal is to bring all the AAGSAR community members online with a blog or family website, creating a fantastic source of information and inspiration for African-American family history researchers. "We very well could see the likes of 75-plus new genealogy blogs online before 11:59p.m. Jan. 5," Daniels says.

See a list of AAGSAR genealogy blogs here, and look for it to grow on Jan. 5.

one of the things that always bummed me out about doing genealogy research online was the lack of other African American researchers and resources. the upcoming Blog Fest will be a tremendous help! thank you, Luckie, for organizing this event, and thanks, Diane, for the publicity!

Seeing others in the genealogy blogging community who look like me and who have had similar experiences is a resource I look forward to enjoying. Thank you for the announcement of the African American Genealogy and Slave Research Group. We are moving forward under Luckie's leadership.

Thank you for mentioning our group AAGSAR and the Blog Fest coming up on January 5th. Blogging is a new experience for me and I thank Luckie Daniels for guiding me to start my blog and to Bernita Allen for being my coach. AAGSAR is a super wonderful group of people. I'm so excited about our Blog Fest!!!!!!

It's good to see you spreading the word. It is truly amazing how many new African American Genealogy blogs have been started by AAGSAR in the past few months.

I am proud to be associated with AAGSAR, they have helped me tremendously with my genealogy research. Thanks to them I have begun blogging about my journey to find my ancestors. I am so excited to be part of the upcoming AAGSAR Blogfest. My fellow bloggers are amazing. They motivate, encourage and inspire me. Thank you Diane and Family Tree Magazine for mentioning our group.

AAGSAR is the BEST collaborative genealogy group for “serious” family historians and researchers that I've been so fortunate to be a member of. So I thank YOU for sharing the knowledge about us and and about our upcoming Blogfest event --- January 5, 2014 . . . woo-hoo!

I'm one of the new bloggers that is receiving guidance as a member of AAGSAR. I've had a tree up at for awhile, but with the encouragement of our community, I can see more family genealogy stories finding a home on my blog. Thanks for highlighting the group. Looking forward to new bloggers joining us and others coming to visit our memory boards, Lukasa!

Blogging about my family history is a brand new experience for me. AAGSAR welcomed me with open arms and have helped me tremendously. AAGSAR is a community of very encouraging, supportive and helpful genealogists.

I am so proud to be a part of the AAGSAR family. Thanks for highlighting the work done in this group with the guidance of Luckie Daniels. This group has given me a whole new view on genealogy research.

Delighted to see the work of Luckie Daniels and fellow members of AAGSAR and our upcoming BlogFest mentioned. I know that many of us have taken giant leaps forward in our family history efforts as a result of membership in the group, and I can't wait to see still more join the fold as a result of the many new blogs that will be rolling out come January 5th, 2014.

I am so excited to be a participant of AAGSAR. I have been researching my genealogy for about 15 years and have binders of notes, but now I am learning how to share my notes by blogging and possibly it will reached someone that I can help or vise versa help me find my unknown ancestors.The most important aspect of blogging is that it is giving my ancestors a voice to acknowledge their presense. AAGSAR participants share their resources and knowledge to help the participants at all levels of researching.

I think this is an awesome platform and good way to get your stories heard. I am so glad to be a member of AAGSAR. Before this I wasn't aware of all the benefits of blogging. We are the chosen ones and if we don't tell the story, who else will. I have been researching for 10 years, and is a member of several genealogy groups. This is by far the best one as the people are focused and dedicated. Everyone is willing to roll up their sleeves and help. It is a blessing to have a group of people who take a genuine interest in your work and just want to help. I am really looking forward to all that blogging has to offer, it is already opening doors and closing brick walls.

We are out here and Thanks again for highlighting AAGSAR!
