FHWGS is a non-profit 501(c) 3
organization in the State of Michigan. (Federal ID 38-2290126)
As the first genealogical society in the State of Michigan
dedicated to the research and preservation of our
African-American history, we take pride in our heritage and our
contributions to the world and especially this country. We share
this knowledge with enthusiasm, so that we may take our rightful
place in history.
The Society is managed by the efforts of volunteers. We
encourage participation in these efforts. Membership includes a
newsletter that keeps you informed about the activities of the
society, genealogical and historical related topics and events.
Our membership year runs from September 1 through August 31.
There is no meeting in December.
