Re: Register of Free Black/Colored in GA?

Hello BarbaraE,

If Georgia is like most slave holding States, FPOC's were registered at the County level and they were 'required' to register at regular intervals. I seriously doubt if there is a single 'register' of FPOC for the State of Georgia. A google search on Free Persons of Color in Georgia provided these hits.

You may have to search by county and time period (year) to locate any listings for Georgia FPOC.

Hope this helps,

BarbaraE asks:

"Is there a register of Free Blacks/Colored for Georgia that is accessible online somewhere? I have been looking, but so far only finding books that mention registers but don't list names on those registers.. "
