Hi Emma,

Found this website from an article in the Charlotte Observer about the preservation of an old African-American cemetery:

Thank you, Pip. I will add it to our AA Resources by location.

Thanks Pip,

I will get it added to the list of African-American cemeteries to be worked.

Re Robert Bradford Williams Williams-109320 he was an African-American who migrated from Georgia to New Zealand hence may warrant some extra categories etc. A new profile by me (I am not related to him).

Hello John,

I added a migration and other categories to his profile. You have correctly added his USBH sticker. Natalie

Wondering if a category should be (or has been) created for American slaves who fought with the Loyalists during the Revolutionary War in exchange for freedom and asylum in Nova Scotia, London, and Sierra Leone? See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Loyalist and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nova_Scotian_Settlers.

I don't know if it's been created. I don't do much work with the wars. It might be good to coordinate with the Military Project. I do think it would be a great category to add though.
Emma, I think the Freedman Narratives Free Space Page should be on here, or else add the links found there for each state. What do you think?
Hi Carolyn, that is on the Topics Team Space page. This page is only a temporary holding page until items can be moved to their correct page. This is why I called it a sandbox.
