Five Tribes~Slave Data Collection???
I was looking at my Email from Afrigeneas and thought as I have been thinking for some time now shouldn't there be a specific site source list that maintained a collection data pertaining to the freedmen of the Five Tribes?
Not one to reinvent the wheel and not to take away from the effort of Afrigeneas but there has always been in my opinion a lack of information and a site specific to the needs of the slave research pertaining to the Freedmen of the Five Tribes.
You will note in my posting regarding the book being offered by Don Martini though there is great consideration given to the European and Indian ancestry there is NO mention of the Freedmen ancestry.
Aside from the work done by Angela there is little reference material to assist us in our searches. I would be interested in the thoughts of others regarding assembling a source specific to the needs of the Freedmen of the Five Tribes.
