You can learn how to track your lineage here. It's nothing fancy, but it's a real tool for learning. They give guided tours of the exhibit, and then allow you to check out the research center down stairs. The founder is Black, but he is also Puerto Rican, and had an affinity toward black culture. The center is a tribute to the people, located right near the subway. When your done, I highly suggest you go eat at Sylvia's mmmmmmmm mmmmm mmmmmm
