Re: Slaves freed in Virginia after 1782

Thanks Michael. I have a copy of the Petersburg Register on my site. I did not do a calculation, but it seemed to me that the large majority who registered were descendants of those families on my site who were free since colonial times. That would include nearly all those I transcribed from the register.
