When the project is complete, the names of more than 30,000 enslaved ancestors will be preserved in this FREE collection, for generations to come.
This remarkable collection contains the name of every slave ever listed in a surviving estate inventory for Charleston, SC from colonial times to Emancipation. Many of the post-Civil War inventories list the names of former slaves as well. You can volunteer to help index this FREE collection, to make the records searchable.
