Register of Free Negroes and Mulattoes
Hope this book helps someone also. I found both at the public library so you might be able to get them through the interlibray loan system.
I knew that state laws required free slaves to register but I never knew that they had to renew this registration ever so often.
"Register of free Negroes and Mulattoes Surry County VA".
This book gives you the Laws of VA 1793-1862
Dates of register 1794-1862
Ex: #47 TAMER a negro woman inclining to a bright complexion, has short hair 5'4 1/2"
