CUBAN GENEAOLOGY – Historias de Familias Cubanas
If you haven't already done so, the first place to look for Cuban family trees is the 9-volume Historia de Familias Cubanas by the noted Cuban genealogist Francisco Javier de Santa Cruz y Maillen, Count of Jaruco. For a list of the surname chapter headings of this work and information on how to get copies of the full text of the entries click the above link.

Enciclopedia Heráldica y Genealógica Hispano-Americana -The second place to look for Cuban family trees is the 88-volume Enciclopedia Heráldica y Genealógica Hispano-Americana by the Spanish genealogists Alberto and Arturo Garcia Carraffa. These cover mostly names starting with the letters A-U only, since the authors both died before completing the Encyclopedia. There are, however, some names listed that start with the letters V-Z. An on-line interactive index to the surnames appearing in this work has been prepared by the US Library of Congress and is available by clicking on the following Index. The Index also lists names appearing in the Mogrobejo work described below and also lists various libraries in the United States that have the Carraffa Encyclopedia in their collection.

A printed index to the surname headings of the Carraffa Encyclopedia appears in the 1966 book Hispanic Surnames and Family History by Lyman D. Platt (ISBN: 0-8063-1480-X) which you can get from your local library on interlibrary loan or purchase in many genealogical book stores.
Click on the link at the head of this Section for full details on the Carraffa Encyclopedia and information on where to get copies of the actual chapter entries.

These books, by the contemporary basque genealogist and publisher Endika de Mogrobejo, continue the Carraffa Encyclopedia starting alphabetically with the surname "Urriza". To date 12 volumes have been announced, although only the first 6 volumes seem to be currently available. Click on the above link for the alphabetic range of surnames covered in each volume. The US Library of Congress on-line interactive Index to the Carraffa Encyclopedia described previously also includes the surnames appearing in the first 6 volumes of this work. The entries corresponding to the Endika de Mogrobejo work are indicated by volume numbers preceded by an "E".

These books can be obtained on interlibrary loan, purchased directly from Spain via the Internet, or purchased at the Ediciones Universal bookstore in Miami. Be warned that the books are large in size, leather bound and rather expensive.

MALI -
Timbuktu:
www.tombouctoumanuscripts.org
Ahmed Baba Institute of Higher Learning and Islamic Research (IHERI-AB) Government of Mali – Holdings of over 30,000 manuscripts. The government of Mali had instituted the Ahmed Baba Centre for Documentation and Research (CEDRAB-the abbreviated title it is generally referred to in French) in Timbuktu in 1973. The origins of the Centre go back to a meeting convened by UNESCO, in 1967 in Timbuktu.

The Mamma Haidara Memorial Library Abdel Kader Haidara, custodian of Mamma Haidara Library. The Mamma Haidara Library was started by Abdul Kader Haidara, former employee of the Ahmed Baba Institute (IHERI-AB). After leaving the Centre he devoted all of his time and energy to preserve his own family’s manuscript collection and was successful in setting up the Mamma Haidara Memorial Library, which was the first of its kind in Mali.

The Haidara family is renowned for its scholars and judges. Abdul Kader’s father, Mamma Haidara, was not only a Qadi (judge), but also a scholar who taught classical Islamic sciences such as Jurisprudence and Arabic Grammar. His personal library dates back to the 16th century and is one of the largest and oldest collections in the city.

This library was established by Mamma Haidara’s forebear, Mohamed El Mawlud, and was handed down to his descendants, generation after generation. Mamma Haidara added to it substantially, buying manuscripts while studying in Egypt and Sudan. He also studied under local scholars in the village learning Centres of Arawan and Boujbeyha, procuring manuscripts there as well. In addition to his Timbuktu library, Mamma Haidara had also established an archive in the village of Bamba. Abdul Kader began cataloguing his inherited collection and was assisted by the al-Furqan Heritage Foundation in London, which agreed to publish his catalogue. Currently four of the projected five volumes in the catalogue have been published. 

The Timbuktu Andalusian Library (Fondo Ka’ti) Fondo Ka'ti Library

The Biblioteca Andalusi de Tombuctu, less elaborately referred to as the Fondo Ka’ti Library was officially opened on September 27 2003, with generous funding from the Spanish government because of the links of the Ka’ti family, the founders of the library, with Spain. The library was started by Ismael Diadié Haidara, descendent of Mahmud Ka’ti, the famous Timbuktu chronicler renowned for his Ta'rikh al-Fattash. Ismael claims that his paternal family descends from Roderique the Goth, the Christian ruler of Spain at the time of the arrival of the Arabs under the leadership of Tariq ibn Ziyad. The Christian rulers were split over whether to welcome the Arabs or to oppose them and he explains that his ancestors welcomed the Arabs and were amongst the first to embrace Islam. His ancestor ‘Ali ibn Ziyad finally left Andalusia in the 1460’s and settled in the village of Goumbou, on the border of Mauritania and Mali. ‘Ali ibn Ziyad married Khadija, sister to the Songhai ruler, Askia Muhammad. In this way Spanish, Arab and African lineages were mingled and finally found abode in Timbuktu.

The al-Wangari Manuscript Library al-Wangari Library
The al-Wangari Manuscript Library was officially opened on September 26 2003 and is overseen by Mukhtar bin Yayha al-Wangari. The library consists of approximately 3000 manuscripts and is based on the original library of Shaykh Muhammad Baghayogho, a distinguished 16th-century shaykh and jurist originally from the town of Jenne.

This collection contains many works by Sudanese and Moroccan scholars. The oldest document consists of copied parts of the Qur’an and is dated to 1695. Besides religious texts, it also contains some important historical documents.

The library was established sometime between Shaykh Baghayogho al-Wangari’s settlement in Timbuktu and his death in 1594. Although the library was preserved by the shaykh’s son and then several generations after him, it ultimately dissolved over time. The manuscripts were scattered amongst various family members in Jenne, Goundam and also Timbuktu.

It was through the efforts of Mukhtar bin Yayha al-Wangari that a comprehensive attempt to recollect these manuscripts was made. Through research involving oral testimony and primary written documentation, as well as meetings with the entire family, he managed to revive Shaykh Muhammad Baghayogho’s library.

Tombouctou Manuscripts Project is supported by the Gerda Henkel Stiftung (https://www.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/foundation) and the University of Cape Town (http://www.uct.ac.za/).
