AfriGeneas Genealogy and History Forum
Dr. James M. Rose (1939-2013)
This morning, my business partner and mentor Dr. James Rose passed away after a long battle with cancer. Dr. Rose was one of the forefathers of African American genealogy beginning with his first book, Black Genesis, published in 1973. He went on to publish several more books and also help to found the Ethnic Genealogy Research Center at Queen's College in New York.
He will be greatly missed!
