Are you researching Missouri? If so take a look at the online presentations made by Traci Wilson-Kleecamp in her 5 part series on African American Genealogy. I have listened to each of them, and they are great sources on how to put the pieces together in your own personal research. These presentations rest on the Missouri State Archives website at:
