For discussion of genealogy and family history of people in Africa.
Discussion may include sources, resources, and the relationship between family
history and general history, economic history, social history, church history
etc. It may also include emigration and imigration to, from or within Africa.
To be relevant, discussion of people and families should have families who
lived in Africa, or whose parents or children lived in Africa. The focus of
the group is not ethnic, but geographical. It may deal with people of Asian or
European or other ethnic origin, provided they (or their parents or children)
lived in Africa.
It is not for discussion of African-American genealogy -- there are other
Yahoo Groups for that -- except insofar as it concerns original migrants.
This list/group was started because the newsgroup soc.genealogy.african, and
its associated Rootsweb newsgroup, has not functioned for several years, and
there seems no likelihood of it ever re-starting.
The newsgroup seems to be working again, but that state of affairs rarely
lasts longer than a week every year or two.
