Loudoun County VA slaves - transitions to freedom
Am preparing to post to a webpage the intial results from my search of the slave birth register for Loudoun County VA which covers the years 1853 to emancipation. I've been using the 1880 census cd set to search for correlations - and have identified many first names and correct d.o.b. (and sometimes surnames) still living with the mother named at birth. Cross checking with marriage registers I have been able to confirm the probable last slaveowner for quite a few families/individuals.
As soon as I can organize the material will put it up, and then go back to the 1870 census and slave death register to attempt to identify a few more.
If anyone has specific Loudoun county VA families you are interested in please feel free to contact me via email or post here and I'll see what I have.
