Church Record Sunday: Congregational People of Color Finding Aid
I love finding unique collections. Today's Church Record Sunday is from the Congregational Library & Archives. The People of Color Preliminary Finding Aid is, according to their web page:
This finding aid is designed to help scholars identify sources in the collections of the Congregational Library that relate to African Americans, Native Americans, and Afro-Indians. This guide is not comprehensive but is a starting point for research into these people groups. The material covered in this guide is primarily focused on 18th century and early 19th century material, but earlier and later collections also contain information about people of color.
There are some great resources here if you have ancestors for Massachusetts that span church records, manuscripts, and books.
