Frazine Taylor is a well-known expert on researching ancestry, with a particular emphasis on helping individuals locate available resources useful for researching African American records in archives, libraries, and county courthouses throughout the state of Alabama and beyond. Taylor worked to disseminate her findings through numerous workshops, and she has also provided personal consultations for thousands of would-be genealogists.
On this page Taylor will provided instruction and relevant links for genealogical research.
The most definitive resource, however, could be found in a genealogical guide written by Frazine Taylor. Prior to Frazine’s book, Researching African American Genealogy in Alabama: A Resource Guide, African American family history resources seemed to exist for every state except Alabama. With this publication, however, Frazine was able to provide the most definitive instruction for conducting African American genealogical research.
