I frequently gift this book to new researchers or those wanting to learn how to do African American genealogy. Burroughs has taught every level from novice to college student. His tips save considerable time, and help you to avoid making many of the mistakes that researchers make when beginning the process.

Bought this book a few years ago. Just getting around to catching up on reviews. I have used this book, in conjuction with Ancestry.com. It was helpful, and did not put me to sleep reading it. I was adopted, and had a tough time locating records, and ideas to continue my searches. The good news is this book sits next to my bed, referring to it as needed. Its been 7 years, and i have traced a lineage of relatives back to the 18th century. I now need to do some road work, visiting county buildings, and will have this book in tow. If you like to read, this is a good book to start your search. Don't have to worry about battery life of the computer. Would suggest it as a 'buy' for others.

"Black Roots," by renown Black genealogists Tony Burroughs is without doubt the best "how-to" book on getting started in African American genealogy that has been written for the beginner. Bringing to bear his wide experience as a teacher, lecturer, and researcher, Mr Burroughs addresses in detail all of the traditional, as well as non-traditional, elements that make for searching, researching, and documenting a genealogy as well as family history. This book is extremely well written, illustrated, and organized; suitable for use for individual study as well as classroom use. In addition to containg numerous clear examples for his narratives in its twenty chapters, the book also has a set of excellent appendixes covering: a glossary, acronyms, traps, a short biography of Robert Elliott Burroughs (one of the "skeletons" all genealogists find, and the author's uncle), a directory of sources, and an excellent bibliography. If one buys only one book this year, I strongly recommend: "Black Roots," by Tony Burroughs.

This book is a good start for individuals who are just beginning their genealogy research. As someone who has done a fair amount of work already, I was hoping this book would give me insights that I could not already find on [...] or RootsWeb.

On the plus side, the book is well organized and written in a language anyone can comprehend. I would highly recommend it to the novice genealogist.

I am, however, still on the search for more intermediate knowledge.

This is an execellent resource for someone new to African-American genealogy research. The book condition provided by the seller was just as advertised. I will definitely purchase from this seller again.

Big help for my search of my family tree.
I gave this book as a present. The recipient read the first six chapters and told me he had done everything Tony said not to do. He also said this book is superb and it came at a perfect time for him to really find his ancestors.
