Emancipation Records Look-ups NC
I have the book "In Full Force and Virtue; North Carolina Emancipation Records 1713 -1860", by William L. Byrd III and am willing to do look-ups if anyone has the name of a slave and his possible owner. I had good luck with it myself, but didn't connect the names at first because I didn't know the last slaveowner's name. I just stumbled over records I was looking for because I knew the slaves I was looking for were one family group, and all of the names were together. So if anyone has any slaves they may think were freed and has at least a couple of names from a family group, maybe this book will help them.
