This is the home page for the Beyond Kin Project at WikiTree. This is a trial project in an effort to organize, by alternative means, to determine the true names of enslaved populations. It is based on the method of the Beyond Kin Project - https://beyondkin.org/
This method relies on a naming standard that does not fit the WikiTree conventions. It is recommended that participants use free spaces to organize your work and to create profiles after all effort has been made to determine the actual name of an enslaved, or a previously enslaved, person.
This is the naming convention recommended by the Beyond Kin website. At this time, profiles should only be created once the last name a formerly enslaved person used after emancipation. We can use surname as the name of the free space.
