Re: Slave Narratives
In Response To: Slave Narratives ()

I found 2 great grandmothers (both of my mother's grandmothers). For the maternal grandmother, much of the information was not factual, either recorded incorrectly or intentionally misstated. But ... it provided her age at marriage, the date the family moved to a different county and other useful info. The paternal grandmother participated in the second round of narratives which focused on slave beliefs and superstitions. She told a story about ghosts. It had no genealogy value.
