    Great webinar on creating a checklist for African American genealogy resources.

    I love her voice!

    It is always a pleasure to listen to Angela. She always gives informative webinairs and provides a great syllabus. I always learn something new.

    Loved it!! Learned so many available resources that I hadn’t know existed, and I’ve been researching for about 18 years!

    My goodness! An awesome webinar!!! So much great information as well as not commonly known information given. Lots of myths blown
    out of the water too. Wonderful inspiration how to think outside the box to identify new avenues of research. And Angela’s passion for the subject is infectious! I personally don’t have any African American roots but a lot of what she teaches can be applied to other areas of research. She makes me wish that I did have African American ancestry!

    One of my favorites. Very informative!

    Only do a little African American research, but try not to miss one of Angela’s webinars – she is fantastic and I learn so much.


    She was excellent. I got a lot of information from this webinar.

    Useful information, explained very well. Excellent and clearly very knowledgeable presenter.

    very good, a lot of information

    Very nicely done. I learned some new databases and resources to use. Please ask her to do a case study of tracing an ancestor or individual using the records and documenting the sources – would make a good follow up to this webinar. Thanks.

    Wealth of information, highly organized and precise, easy to follow along based on outline for presentation, great visuals and links to resources. Inspired to look beyond 1870s


    Wonderful information.

    Wonderful resources. Angela Walton Raji is a talented, well educated speaker!
