February 13, 2005 The fourth edition of "Free African Americans of North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina from the Colonial Period to about 1820," by Paul Heinegg, is an expansion of the third edition. That work won the American Society of Genealogists' Donald Lines Jacobus Award for the best work of genealogical scholarship published between 1991 and 1994. His works have been honored as this generation's greatest achievement in black genealogy. This two-volume edition contains 1,045 pages, has 350 detailed genealogies in alphabetical order, traces about 20 families living in South Carolina (where original source materials are scarcer than in the other two states), furnishes documentation for primary and secondary sources, and lists 10,000 African-Americans in the full-name index in Vol. 2.
