IAAM: The International African American Museum Launches Groundbreaking African American Genealogy Center. “Today, the International African American Museum (IAAM) announced the launch of its Center for Family History – an innovative national genealogy research center dedicated solely to celebrating and researching African American ancestry. The center will engage in genealogy education, original research, community archiving, public outreach, and collections. It will also assist with DNA testing. The Center for Family History is the International African American Museum’s first program launch. It will engage visitors online now … and in one of the most prominent gallery spaces in the museum.” Disclaimer: I’ve been doing some writing for Toni Carrier, one of the people behind this launch. I don’t get extra for promoting the new center, and I’m not being paid directly for promoting it. I do think it’s a fantastic idea and want to help get the word out.
