‘Forgotten Patriots’ remembered

-A +A
Residents researching African American and American Indian ancestors will have a new resource to use. Roseville’s Gold Trail Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution presented a copy of “Forgotten Patriots” to the Roseville Genealogy Society Feb. 9. The book is an unprecedented publication highlighting the contributions of African American and American Indians in America’s war for Independence. The guide identifies more than 6,600 names of African American and American Indians who contributed to the war effort. The book will be added to the collection in the Genealogy Library, located in the Old Carnegie Museum at 557 Lincoln St. in Roseville. The Daughters of the American Revolution hope that this book will inspire interest in the service of these ancestors and the work of the DAR. The DAR is a women’s volunteer service organization that has been promoting education, historic preservation and patriotic endeavors for more than 120 years. ~ Staff report
