Pleas for slave data for genealogy research, by Linda Ball and Valencia King Nelson.

Another place to post slave data:

Date: Tue, 23 Sep 1997 11:56:08 -0500 (CDT)
From: Carol C-H []



If, while you are researching your ancestors, you encounter plantation
information - slave data - in wills, deeds, or other documents, please send
it to so that African-American cousins who are
seeking their ancestors might have a better chance of success. If you have
a copyrighted book with such info and are willing to do lookups, please post
that fact to the list, also.

Some of you sent data a few months ago when I was planning to have a website
for that purpose, but this will be even better, I think, since the archives
of that list can be accessed by those who want the information.

Any of you who might also want to join that list can do so by sending
SUBSCRIBE in the message part of a post to

You may send information to the mailing list without having to be a member
of it.


And another.

Subject: Re: Slave data addresses


One more you can add to the above. I send slave names
from wills I run into all the time. She acts as a cutter - doing away with the
unnecessary and just leaving what the researchers need. Her name is Susan.
