In Response To: HOW TO DETERMINE WHEN YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS WERE FREED ()
If your family members are listed on the U.S. Federal Census and not the Slave schedules, then they would be considered Free People of Color. The free inhabitants census did not list slaves.
The slave schedules usually list the master's name, sometimes the slave name.
