Re: List of possible emigrants to Liberia
In Response To: Re: List of possible emigrants to Liberia ()
Hollis as always is on target when it comes to searches on just about any topic. So I'm confident that Hollis' suggestions will include excellent resources for you.
A bit more circuitous, but perhaps helpful are the following links with a brief explanation.
Cornell University's Making of America is another invaluable gateway/resource. It's digitized archives have helped me in various research projects. I'm always delighted and surprised by what I believe is too obscure, pops up in MOA's search engine. Please click on the main link below. I plugged in Liberia and got lots of hits from both books and journals.
Also Cornell's "New York State Historical Literature" despite its title, includes many links to the South. Using Liberia as a search term, it produced 16 hits (some bibliographical). Also please note this incredible search engine/resource will produce wills, correspondence etc. connected to Southern families along with slaves, free people of color.
Best regards and good luck,
K Wyer Lane
