This post is part of My Commitment for Black History Month. I encourage you to share the names of the enslaved persons you find during your genealogy research to help African American genealogy research.
I can not change what other people have done in the past, especially my super shady ancestors. (They know who they are.) What I can do, is give a voice to the unnamed. By recording and sharing their names, my hope is that it will inspire others to publicly share information they encounter in their genealogy research that may help African American genealogy research, and the millions of descendants of the enslaved.
