Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the African American Registry is a link libraries should consider adding to their web pages. Including blogs, videos, text articles, links to other resources, the site translates into languages around the world (Google translations), family history, etc. I’ve included information below about the Registry. Benjamin Mchie is always interested in coming and speaking to library staff and they are especially interested in helping library staff and teachers use the site with students. They are receiving hits on the site from all over the world and I was especially interested in the quick ability to change the text on the site to other languages.
