Buckingham County: African American History

Buckingham County_AA

Buckingham County genealogy and history prior to 1869 is challenging research for us all, but it is especially challenging for African Americans with Buckingham roots.  It is not hopeless, however. In the coming weeks posts will discuss the interconnectedness of Buckingham’s black and white families, offering some unexpected places to look for information.

Many of you are already familiar with E. Renée Ingram and Charles W. White Sr.’s book, Buckingham County, a selection in Arcadia Publishing’s Black America Series. If you haven’t seen this exceptional pictorial volume, I highly recommend it.

At Amazon, you can “Look Inside” and see what I mean: Buckingham County

Coming next: Central Virginia Historical Researchers
