About Us

The Staten Island Richard B. Dickenson Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (SIAAHGS) – is a 501 C (3) membership organization open to the public. The chapter provides a monthly forum for individuals 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 researched a diverse spectrum of interests that span the African diaspora.
