African Americans have long decried the incompleteness of an American history, which consistently denies, ignores and distorts the contributions their ancestors made to the advancement of this country.

 

Members of the Fred Hart Williams Genealogical Society (FHWGS), a Detroit-based organization founded in 1979, have attempted to fill in the historical gaps on a local level. The organization has researched, compiled and published the following books:

 

Our Untold Stories: A Collection of Family History Narratives

 

Public Sites Named for Blacks

 

102nd U.S. Colored Troops Buried at Elmwood Cemetery

 

Fred Hart Williams Genealogical Society Newsletters 1980-1999

 

FHWGS 20th Anniversary Celebration Souvenir Book

 

FHWGS 25th Anniversary Celebration Souvenir Book

 

FHWGS 30th Anniversary Celebration Souvenir Book

 

In keeping with Society’s mission of preserving African American history, life and culture, these publications serve as valuable references for genealogists, students, educators, families and researchers around the globe. Currently out of print, copies are available in the Burton Historical Collection at the Detroit Public Library’s Main Branch located at 5201 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, Michigan.
