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.
