African-American Funeral Programs
Scope and Contents
This collections consists of funeral programs which in most cases were donated anonomously and placed into family surname vertical files.
These programs typically list family (parents, children, and extended members), church and community affiliations, and important events in the life of the deceased.
Given the importance of these records to the Black community for genealogical reference, the Bryan-Lang staff decided to form a collection based upon these programs and actively work with community members to increase the number of programs in the collection, primarily through post-custodial methods.
