This page contains links to sources from which Wikitreers can create slave owners and enslaved people. The primary audience is US Black Heritage Pathfinders .... I am trying to hand-pick documents which have a fairly unique name for the slave owner (i.e., not John Smith), and a few enslaved ancestors.

If you are going to work on a document, please place your WikiID and date beside it, thanks!
