Thought this might be of interest to those working on former slaves.

Last Seen is recovering the stories of families separated in the domestic slave trade. You can search thousands of Information Wanted Ads taken out by former slaves to look for your ancestors

I use to transcribe for Family Search. Might be interesting to transcribe a few of these. 

I have recently worked/added profiles on some of the Slave Narratives. Also added a former slave in NC that I ran across while DDing and added his descendants, wonderfully connected with a descendant that is going to join and add her dna.

Thank you Terry. I think this has been added to the list of resources for the US BLACK HERITAGE group. Would you be interested in joining the group? A project to transcribe these sources is a great idea.
