Re: Negro Registries
In Response To: Negro Registries ()
A couple of years ago, I also came across a Free Negro Register while I was transcribing some records in the Court Records of Halifax Co.,North Carolina for the years 1847-1865. I posted it the Halifax Co.,USGenweb site, and it does give one quite a picture of what was going on at the time. The coordinator chose to rename it "Free People of Color Register", I guess to be pc, but I really have no problem with that, I just wanted the info to get out there.
By the way, we also have something in common in that I am a new coordinator for the Granville Co.,NC USGenweb site and am also adding new African American data to that and the Warren Co.,NC pages too.
