Locating Blood Relatives Beyond 1870
I have researched one of my ancestors to the 1870 census. I think I have also located his family's slaveholders.
In learning more about their slaveholders, I have stumbled upon two other males with the same surname listed together with my ancestor on the Alabama 1866 colored population census.
How can I determine if they are related to my ancestor?
I have tried to look at where my ancestor's mother and father were born, but it varies report to report. There are a few similarities.
Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
The surnames in reference are Jefferson Britt, Aberdeen (Dean) Britt, and Benjamin Britt in Barbour County, AL.
