In Response To: Re: SLAVE RECORDS OF EDGEFIELD SC-found kin ()
I decided to put this here for everyone to see.
I am toying with trying to do something of the sort for my people who lived in Aberdeen/Monroe,MS. I know, this will be an overwhelming job. But maybe if I start it, someone else will be able to add to it. EACH ONE TEACH ONE. I don't Live in Mississippi but I do have copies of paper estate records from a visit I made there to the Court House, For some of the 'white slaveholders', I thought might have been 'THE ONE'. I think we all should pull together and some way chart these Estate sells in a book for our community of interest. I have contacted my local Genealogy Library and they have ordered this book so it will be available in their collection. I suggest everyone do this. To go page by page can be time consumming. I have my own.
