Afri-Quest, The People’s Archive

I have not seen this site before, but it claims to be a collaborative free genealogical information site.  From the website:

Welcome to Afriquest, the free online database for records of African American genealogy and history. Afriquest is a place to share and preserve documents, images and family oral history. Every document, image or story you add to Afriquest will be preserved and will remain free to access, for generations to come.

Everything you share here belongs to you – you may edit your content or remove it at any time. Welcome to YOUR Afriquest: The People’s Archive!

I thought the initial concept was like a wiki, but it appears that the site reviews what is submitted for publication prior to posting.

Has anyone used this site?  I like the basic premise.  Check it out for yourself at
