The Slave Archival Collection (www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ilissdsa/text_files/database_intro2.htm) is an “alphabetical extract of slave data was generated from a campaign to collect names of enslaved ancestors from living descendants across the country. This is an ongoing project to preserve slave genealogy and history for future generations. The names gathered will be placed on a permanent memorial honoring our enslaved ancestors who helped build our nation.”
