Baltimore appl. for certificates of freedom 2
In Response To: Baltimore co. MD appl. certificates of freedom ()
As a follow-up to my earlier post , here are some common surnames from the book "Slavery, Slaveholding, and the Free Black Population of Antebellum Baltimore". These are records of applications of certificates of freedom for former slaves from 1840-1864.
I have previously transcribed the BAKER entries.
