Making Plantation Slave Profiles

Please begin here:

Don't Forget to Link

  • Once the first profile is created for the enslaved person, COPY THE PLANTATION ID into the new profile;
  • Then, COPY THEIR ID and create the link to their new profile on the plantation page.
  • If they are a child of a known parent, COPY THEIR ID into the mother's or father's profiles, as well.

Example profile (simple, not connected): Cury Cade

Example profile (connected): Ben Jackson
