Wilson County NC African-American Genealogy, a Facebook group.

I often get queries here at Black Wide-Awake from people seeking help with finding their roots or connecting with family descended from a common ancestor. I have extensive genealogical research history, but I don’t have the bandwidth to take on projects for others. Also, I don’t live in North Carolina, where the best non-digital primary source material is located. So, I’ve created a Facebook group as a space in which to make connections with long-lost family, to post inquiries, and to share research about African-American families from Wilson County.

Please join us there.


    1. DNA is a tool to be used in conjunction with traditional research. DNA results have to be interpreted. They don’t deliver automatic results. (I did my first genealogical DNA test in 2008 and have tested with multiple companies since.)
