AfriGeneas Slave Research Forum
Sankofa's Slavery Data Collection (Website)
I've been in hiding for a while...please forgive me for being relatively inaccessible. I am going back to authoring my "plantations database."
My old forum server is extant, and now I have to put up a brand new one. It will serve as both a guestbook and a forum...I don't see the purpose in keeping them separate.
Currently, I have been using various sources of info to create plantation reference pages...web sites, books about slavery, slave narratives, online library plantation record collections, freedmen records, and oral info from contributors.
I have loosened the restrictions for submitting "plantations"/ slave work places. I will now be listing many under the owner's name...as i have been quite successful in ironing out confusions between owner names and plantation titles. So now the only restrictions for submitting a plantation to the collection are
1. Plantation/ owner's name
Here's how it generally works...you submit what you have, I set up a page for it, and as I do my research, I fill in the details/ corrections as they come....Or, I set up pages for plantations that I find them on my own.
If you find he Plantation submission form to be dysfuntional or completely confusing, don't use it...just e-mail me your info and I'll format it for you
