Washington Post Online Magazine for Blacks
The Washington Post Company has introduced an online magazine primarily for a black
audience, with news and commentary on politics and culture, and tools for readers to
research their family histories. Of note to genealogists, the new magazine features
a section entitled "Roots" that will have online tools for people to build their
family trees, link to or add information to other people's trees and to construct
maps showing their ancestral trails.
The new magazine will also urge people to have DNA testing, which can help them
trace their backgrounds to specific ethnic groups and parts of the world. It will
offer links to companies that do the testing, including to one company that is
co-owned by the online magazine's editor in chief, Henry Louis Gates Jr.
