Re: how to find out if your ancestors were free or

Try looking for your g-grandfather in censuses from other states...a lot of Free Colored went from SC to GA and AL...so if you look in those states, as well as TN and even NC and VA, you might find him...That's all I know to tell you...Good luck..
