SlaveSearch Update: New Data Added
In Response To: New Slave Research Database ()

New data added in the last month.

From the Maryland State Archives, we added 8,900 records of slaves sales and 5,600 records of slave inventories.

From the Library of Virginia, we added two small, but very interesting sets of data: Petitions to Stay in the Commonwealth, and Petitions for Re-Enslavement. Together just 400 records, but very interesting in what they say about the history of slavery in Virginia.

Click through for a discussion about why on earth someone would want to be re-enslaved.

As always, if you like the site, please spread the word, particularly on the Facebook forum for African American Genealogy.
