BGSAD began in 1996. Our goal is to assist members in developing their research skills and contribute to the genealogical community at large. One of our major programs is Our Funeral Program Collection. Microfilmed copies of people affiliated with Buffalo or our members' relatives are available at the Merriweather Library, the Monroe Fordham Center at SUCB, and the Central Branch of the Library. The microfilming was made possible through the Afro-American Historical Association of the Niagara Frontier. We have microfilmed 3 volumes, approximately 7,000 programs, and continue to collect funeral programs for our 4th volume. Our group meets on the second Saturdays from 11 am - 1 pm at the Merriweather Library every month except August and September (occasionally our June meeting falls during Juneteenth, so look for us at the Heritage Tent!) Each year we sponsor a Computer Workshop that is open to the public. Join us to begin your ancestor search!

The Staten Island Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (SIAAHGS) – The Richard B. Dickenson Chapter is a 501 C (3) membership organization open to the public. Regular meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month (except in July and August) at the Staten Island Museum. The chapter provides a monthly forum for people who are just beginning to research their African (African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-European) diaspora family histories as well as those who have already gathered information going back many generations. Geographically our members are not solely focused on Staten Island’s African-American genealogy and history, in fact, they have research interests that span the African diaspora.
