Oberlin African-American Genealogy & History Group

Oberlin African-American Genealogy & History Group The Oberlin African-American Genealogy & History Group (OAAGHG) is dedicated to encouraging support for African-American genealogy and historical research.
The Oberlin African-American Genealogy and History Group (OAAGHG) was organized in 2000 from a group of friends who met informally around their interest in genealogy. OAAGHG was incorporated by the State of Ohio in the spring of 2001 and recognized as a federal non-profit 501(c)(3) organization during the summer of 2002. The Oberlin African-American Genealogy and History Group (OAAGHG), is dedicated to encouraging support for African-American Genealogy and Historical Research. The OAAGHG logo is an original design by Margaret Christian featuring two hands holding a baobab tree and symbolizing the continued connection of African-Americans to Africa, the land of our ancestors.

“The Lost Streets of Oberlin “ by Oberlin Police Officer, Bashshar Wiley.

Oberlin Police Officer Bashshar Wiley recently wrapped up an investigation into Oberlin’s changing landscape. Combining his knowledge of Oberlin’s current street layout with historic atlases, Officer Wiley tracked changes to streets overtime and documented streets that have disappeared off the map entirely. If you would like to learn more about the history of Oberlin’s roadways, check out the full blog post at the link below.
