An Appeal for SlaveData In Your Family Search
Attention All Rooters with SlaveData:
We would certainly encourage and support all researchers to share any and all slave data you encounter in your genealogical pursuits. We, African Ancestored Researchers (aka: Afrigeneas), have a project of some 9 year duration to gather, compile and make available slave data to the African Ancestored researcher. Records kept by the slaveowner are frequently the only clue to our ancestors, particularly during the period 1619-1870.
Records Sought include:
Advertisements Apprenticeship Bible Records
Bills of Sale Birth Records Census Schedules
Church Records Cohabitation Court Recorda
DayBooks/Logs Death Records Diaries-Journals
Inventories Legislative Acts Letters
Litigation Manumissions Marriage Records
Military Records Misc Records Pension Records
Plantation Records Run-A-Ways SlaveOwners
Slave Sales Tax Records Wills
Such information provided is available to all researchers at our FTP site and at the Afrigeneas HomePage. It is also available in the AOL Genealogy Forum Libraries.
What format would we want the data? Well in the final analysis, whatever is best for you, the Sharer.

Parent(s) of Slave:
