There are some Afro-American links, formerly in "Joan's Genealogy Links" now in the
Pleas for slave data for genealogy research, by Linda Ball and Valencia King Nelson.
Another place to post slave data:
If, while you are researching your ancestors, you encounter plantation
information - slave data - in wills, deeds, or other documents, please send
it to SLAVEINFO-L@rootsweb.com 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 SLAVEINFO-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org
You may send information to the mailing list without having to be a member
